Every week, Detroit Future Schools (DFS) artist-in-residence Joe Rodriguez-Tanner works with the students at Amelia Earhart in Southwest Detroit, integrating digital media arts into their core content. He works in close partnership with their teacher, Anna Marschalk-Burns (known to the students as Ms. MB) who is committed to fostering in her students the DFS "11 Essential Traits of Habit, Character and Mind."
The Allied Media Conference is a slow-cooked stew. Here in Detroit, the cold has crept in, reminding us that it’s time to start chopping up the AMC ingredients and set them to simmer. Even though there are 232 days between now and AMC2013, it will be here before we know it, and it will be delicious because of all the careful preparation that happens between now and June.
Here are three good ways to start your AMC2013 prep today!
On Saturday Dec. 1, 2012 the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition (DDJC) and Detroit Future programs will celebrate two years of building a digital justice movement in Detroit. The Detroit Future celebration will mark the close of our Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) grant and will include a community report-back on how these federal funds were spent to benefit Detroit.
Prometheus Radio Project has supported the Allied Media Conference since way back in the Bowling Green, OH days. They've contributed to the AMC as participants, sponsors, and coordinators, and have organized our community to win the Local Community Radio Act and are supporting the development of grassroots radio stations across the country.
Prometheus is launching a Reclaim The Airwaves Tour and we are pleased to help spread the word. Here are the details on how to get involved.
