The AMC2012 "Media a Go-Go Lab" is seeking volunteers for this year's Allied Media Conference.
At the center of the AMC galaxy, there is the non-stop Media a Go-Go Lab. It is as diverse as it is explorative — a radiating multidimensional dynamic space that transforms ideas into actions and remixes the energy of our creativity and collective memory into space and time!
BUT WHAT IS IT?
The Media a Go-Go Lab is a multidimensional zone devoted to hands-on and Do-It-Yourself and Do-It-With Others work stations and skillshares. Lab participants will learn media-making skills, collaborative design*, innovative communications tactics**, and build technology throughout the weekend. We will create opportunities to analyze, remix, and transform our current and future technologies! This dynamic space is where we put the walk to the talk at the AMC.
* collaborative design: groups or individuals working together with common goals to create a shared vision
** innovative communication tactics: new ways of shaping and framing messaging for your movement, using internet tools to cross borders
VOLUNTEERS WE NEED
The Media a Go-Go lab stays open all weekend-long and houses stations that allow people to explore the skills they have picked up throughout
the conference. We need volunteers to guide people to various stations, and give AMC participants an idea of what is going on at any particular time.
We are looking for folks with a passion to:
- Demystify media and technology
- Make tech accessible to people of all abilities and experience levels
- Build the leadership of people traditionally excluded from technology
- Allow people to imagine the future of media and technology
EXPECT TO SEE AND PLAY WITH:
- Arduino hardware and software hacking
- Electronics design and soldering
- How to build or fix a computer
- Beat making, audio editing, music production
- Photography stations for editing or re-mixing
- Film and video how-to and editing
- Design and visioning for future technology and media
- Alternative energy and green tech
- Collaborative design stations
- ...and things we aren't planning for!
