Allied Media Conference
The Allied Media Conference (AMC) is an annual gathering of the grassroots media movement. The AMC brings together those working at the cutting edge of social justice-based independent film, radio, print, web, Hip Hop, and youth-based organizing. The Allied Media Conference features multimedia, hands-on workshops, panel discussions, caucus meetings, an expo area where organizations share their work, and some of the dopest spoken word and music performances that you will ever experience. Membership/Constituency: The AMC emphasizes the participation of communities who are most impacted by the current corporate-dominated media system. The AMC is a multiracial gathering, with a strong emphasis on youth participation. The AMC is a network of networks – youth organizations, international solidarity activists, anti-violence organizers, technologists, educators, media reform advocates, alternative economists, musicians and artists, disability activists, and many others – all using media in innovative ways. The AMC is committed to the Midwest and all the brilliant organizers based here. This profile courtesy of Arts & Democracy.
