DFM For Everyone! Detroit Future Media (DFM) is opening up a select number of media making workshops to the public.
Everyday we communicate something about who we are, who we want and what kind of world we want with our clothes and our bodies. How can we understand the ways that fashion builds community and simultaneously excludes from community? How can we reclaim beauty in our own fat, QTPOC, disabled, radical selves?
The Opening Ceremony of the 14th annual Allied Media Conference will feature a three-part panel about storytelling and the fate of the world with presentations by transmedia science fiction storyteller Thenmozhi Soundararajan; writer, filmmaker and social and gender justice activist from Detroit, dream hampton; and Micha Cárdenas, an artist/theorist who works in performance, wearable electronics, hacktivism and critical gender studies.
