Allied Media Conference gives press power to the people

The Allied Media Conference is a four-day long grassroots media training seminar, in which professionals and enthusiasts school each other on everything from graphic design and blogging to performance arts and social justice issues. This year's national conference picked Detroit as Ground Zero for the group's guerrilla education training. It all kicks off June 23 at the McGregor Memorial Hall at Wayne State.

Registration is still open and is on a sliding income scale ($100 is the suggested amount for the four-day conference).

Excerpt:

At the AMC, media creation is not only about personal expression, but about transformation of ourselves and the structures of power around us. We create media that exposes, investigates, resists, heals, builds confidence and radical hope, incites dialogue and debate. We demystify technology, not only learning how to use it, but how to take it apart, fix it and build our own.  We do it ourselves and as communities, connecting across geographic and generational boundaries.
