Download the AMC2014 Program Book

The program book of the 16th annual Allied Media Conference is the largest ever. At 196 pages, the AMC program book presents the more than 200 sessions, meet-ups, activities, and special events of AMC2014 – all entry-points to the universe of media-based organizing.

At the AMC, we define "media-based organizing" as the use of media, art, or technology to advance a more just, creative, and collaborative world.

The AMP Lapel Pin

We are celebrating the new Allied Media Projects logo with a small batch of high quality cloisonné lapel pins. They're not just for your blazer – they also look fresh on your beanie, backpack, or on a cork board.

We have a small batch of these pins and we are offering them exclusively as a gift of thanks to people who register for the Allied Media Conference before the end of April, and to anyone who signs up as an AMP sustainer.
