Allied Media Conference 2007

I know this is not accessible for many of the readers here, but in the interest of getting the word out, I wanted to spread the word about the Allied Media Conference, "Breaking Silence, Building Movements," a media conference being held in two weeks in Detroit!

The official material:
The 2007 AMC is coming to Detroit. Block off June 22-24 in your 2007 calendars for one of the most engaging and inspiring events that you will ever attend.

The 9th annual Allied Media Conference:
"Breaking Silence, Building Movements"
June 22-24, 2007
Detroit, MI

Because so many voices have been silenced by corporate media. Because media should be a tool for communication and transformation and not a commodity to passively consume. Because our stories have been misrepresented, misinterpreted, and straight up missing...

We need a participatory media movement to change the world.

Keep reading for more information, or go to www.amc2007.org.


It's getting louder and louder out there. Though much of humanity is still silenced, more people than ever are speaking out. Whether it be with high-tech tools like blogs, video cameras, and MPCs, or lo-fi tools like spray paint or the spoken word, people are voicing their truths and forging new connections. For eight years, the Allied Media Conference has contributed to that by providing hands-on trainings, accessible discussions, and a supportive community.

Now in its ninth year, the AMC will continue to provide a critical space for us to strategize on the role of media in our communities and movements. In a time of escalating war, and the daily violence of neoliberal policies, we need media that amplifies the voices of those most affected by these crises. We need media that not only breaks silence, but mobilizes people to envision alternatives and to take action.


The Allied Media Conference brings together a phenomenal cross-section of media workers: daring artists and filmmakers, ambitious radio producers, serious publishers, skilled web designers, and effective public policy advocates. It is organized by a team of activists in Detroit, supported by many local organizations and long-time conference participants.
