Creating the World That We Need: Video from the AMC2016 Opening Ceremony

The AMC2016 Opening Ceremony kicked off the 18th annual Allied Media Conference by immersing us in a celebration of the powerful wave of creative movement-building happening across the country. We are excited to share our video, “Creating the World That We Need,” which shares highlights from the AMC2016 Opening Ceremony.

This year, through a partnership with the Detroit Institute of Arts, we held the Opening Ceremony at the 1,200-seat Detroit Film Theater, housed inside the museum. The Opening Ceremony was produced by AMC collaborator and Detroit-based musician Tunde Olaniran.
