The program book of the 16th annual Allied Media Conference is the largest ever. At 196 pages, the AMC program book presents the more than 200 sessions, meet-ups, activities, and special events of AMC2014 – all entry-points to the universe of media-based organizing.
At the AMC, we define "media-based organizing" as the use of media, art, or technology to advance a more just, creative, and collaborative world.
At the AMC will find hands-on workshops on everything from data encryption technologies to gender non-conforming fashion, from data visualization to Detroit dance traditions.
You will find strategy sessions and panels that weave new connections between movements for social change, while asking critical questions about how we "move" and what we’re moving towards.
At night you will find some of the best dance parties of your life. Chill time with new friends, or simply getting some rest, are also great options!
If you feel daunted by the task of choosing between 10, or 12, or 16 intriguing sessions all happening at once, you can turn to the "Tracks" and "Ongoing" sections of the program book. These lighted paths of content can help you navigate the wilds of the AMC by pointing you to the sessions or activities that might align best with your interests.
Of course it is always advisable to go off the path – don’t just stick to the places that seem most comfortable! Seek out the unfamiliar at the AMC and keep an open heart and mind. You
will most likely be delighted.
Be sure to travel between practice, theory, and play. Take good care of yourself and others. Enjoy AMC2014!
