Collaborative design is integral to what we do at the Allied Media Conference – from the organizing process behind the conference’s “tracks”, “practice spaces”, and “network gatherings” to developing the AMC’s visual brand and identity. We interviewed the designers from The Work Dept. to learn more about the collaborative design process behind the AMC's new look.
A community event or program, especially one that uplifts the needs of marginalized communities, can result in outcomes that ripple across space and time. Although some are predictable, there are often unexpected impacts when people come together to share a unique experience — new collaborations, job opportunities, ideas, and friendships can emerge.
In 2015, DCTP and the Open Technology Institute initiated the Community Technology Partnership to provide seed grants to 11 global civil society organizations that are using digital infrastructure to strengthen their communities.
Volunteers make the AMC happen! We are excited to open our call for volunteers for AMC2016. We welcome volunteers of all ages, identities and abilities, and especially look forward to applications from returning volunteers. The deadline to apply is May 10th.
Do you want to make the AMC more accessible to your community? Are you attending the AMC with a group that shares something important in common (identity, practice, issue area, geography) and want more visibility for your crew? You can attend the AMC together as an official “Delegation”!
