The Deutsch Foundation is convening a group of Baltimore-based colleagues, fellows, and grantees will attend the 19th annual Allied Media Conference on June 15-18, 2017 in Detroit, Michigan. Participants will include Jane Brown, President of the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation, Jess Solomon, Senior Program Officer, as well as Khadija Nia Adell, Jen Schacter, Kimi Hanauer, Theo George, and Denise Brown.
Held every summer, the conference brings together a vibrant and diverse community of people using media to incite change: filmmakers, radio producers, technologists, youth organizers, writers, entrepreneurs, musicians, dancers, and artists. We define “media” as anything you use to communicate with the world. You are a media-maker!
Allied Media Projects defines media-based organizing as any collaborative process that uses media, art, or technology to address the roots of problems and advances holistic solutions towards a more just and creative world.
The Allied Media Conference is a collaboratively designed event. Conference content is curated with care every year by 100+ volunteer coordinators of tracks, practice spaces, and network gatherings. The conference features over 300 hands-on workshops, panels, film screenings, Detroit tours, art and music events, strategy sessions, karaoke, bowling, collaborative art and more!
