The Institute for Research on Women and Gender (cosponsored by the Department of Communication Studies and the Howard R. Marsh Center for Journalistic Performance) presents:
Allied Media Conference and Detroit Summer
In this talk, Jenny Lee (Allied Media Conference) and Invincible (Emergence) explore key steps to use community media to rebuild Detroit's economy for the 21st century.
Allied Media Projects (AMP) is the local host of the annual Allied Media Conference in Detroit, which attracts North America's most creative and skilled media makers and social justice organizers. Launched in 2002, AMP relocated to Detroit in 2007 because of the vibrant media-based activism. Though a small nonprofit, AMP brings jobs and visitors' dollars to the city.
Through the conference, AMP has fostered conversations about community media potentially transforming Detroit and other "dying cities" throughout the world. Folks in Detroit-or anywhere that requires a hustle to survive-know that creativity is an abundant and renewable resource. We can build on that.
This event is free and open to the public.
