Sponsored by the The TC2AMC: Twin Cities to Allied Media Conference Delegation with The Main Street Project.
The TC2AMC Delegation consists of 35 or so grassroots organizers and artists in the Twin Cities who have come together to represent MN at the AMC. The group will represent the arts, media, & social change work going on in our neighborhoods and communities to the broader nation. We are excited to share and network at this conference to help raise the profile of the amazing programs and projects we have locally – and hope to bring home many new ideas and resources to share.
The Allied Media Conference (June 23-26th) is an organization focused on sharing tools and tactics to transform our communities through media-based organizing. AMC defines media broadly-from zines to video-blogging to breakdancing, to communicating solidarity and creating justice. In whatever form, media can be a tool for social change. Since being founded in 1999, the AMC has focused on developing and expanding visions of what a more just and creative world could look like.
