Bring your kids to the AMC!

Every year, the Allied Media Conference becomes more awesome for (and because of) kids. Here's some info about kid-focused content at the AMC2013.

The Kids Transform the World Practice Space and the Intergalactic Conspiracy of Childcare Collectives have played a major role in helping make the AMC more kid-friendly.

Childcare is available at the AMC at no cost to parents. Read more about childcare.

As your browse AMC2013 sessions, look for the "kid-friendliness" rating for each session. Here are a few highlights of conference sessions designed especially for kids:

DRESS-UP PARTY! AN ALL AGES FASHION LAB
Kids usually have the best style of anyone in the room – what can they teach the rest of us? In this inter-generational workshop, we will work collaboratively to create fashion that speaks genuinely to who we are. Kids will lead the group in exploring color and pattern with paper dolls, followed by potato printing designs on upcycled t-shirts. Participants will walk away with new ideas for creative expression through fashion and a sweet new shirt!

SUPERPOWER YOGA: STRETCH, FLOAT, FLY
How do we harness our individual and collective superpowers to make our minds and bodies do extraordinary things? In a session of 4-8 year olds we will take a journey through outerspace with our bodies! In a session of 9-12 year olds we will work with partners to stretch the reality of time and space, practicing the awesome things we can do when we work together. We take a break from reality into a fun fantasy of physical games to stretch, balance, float, and fly. Participants will have fun, make something to take away, and leave feeling self aware and charged full of light.

FUN AND FABULOUS FARM FIELD TRIP
How do we nurture earth, and how does earth nurture us? Youth will explore earth health as it relates to community health. We will take a field trip to nearby urban farm, where kids will explore what is growing, how it grows, and how humans, plants and animals all connect to each other. There will be Planting! Weeding! Watering! Harvesting! Frolicking in fields! Picnicking with local foods! From seed, to flower,to fruit, to food ourselves, to compost – we’ll learn about the glorious food cycle and our place in it.
