Welcome to the 18th annual Allied Media Conference!

As we welcome our many communities from across the continent (and seas!) to Detroit this weekend, we are holding immense joy and sadness simultaneously. We are thrilled to reunite this beautiful network of media-based organizers who give us so much hope and inspiration. At the same time, we know that many are coming into this weekend carrying deep grief over the recent Orlando shootings and the one year anniversary of the Charleston shootings.

Welcome to the 17th Annual Allied Media Conference!

The AMC is growing! This year’s AMC includes more than 300 hands-on workshops, film screenings, strategy sessions, and parties – nearly 100 more sessions than we had last year. The dynamic and diverse content of the AMC has been curated and developed with care over the past year by the Allied Media Projects staff and 95 volunteer coordinators of tracks, practice spaces, and network gatherings.
