About AMP

  1. Allied Media Projects cultivates media strategies for a more just, creative, and collaborative world.

  2. We convene close to 2,000 people annually in Detroit to develop and exchange strategies through the Allied Media Conference.

  3. The conference is created each year through a participatory design process. Out of the conference emerge new projects, campaigns, and collaborations that continue year round.

Sponsored Projects

  1. AMP sponsors projects by providing fiscal management, program design, evaluation, fundraising and other support that draws from the capacities we have built after 15 years of producing the AMC.

  2. These "allied media projects" are autonomous and interdependent, working together to grow their own capacity and the capacity of our network as a whole.

  3. Current sponsored projects include Digital Stewards, Detroit Future Schools, Detroit Digital Justice Coalition, Co.Open, and Complex Movements. Join us – fill out an assessment form for your project.
