Allied Media Conference

A Year in Chrysalis

After 20 years of creating, connecting and transforming our community, it’s time to discover the new shapes the amc can take to support our network’s brilliant media-based organizing. Over the year we will engage our network in evolving from a caterpillar to a beautiful butterfly.

Chrysalis Support and Feedback

Turning from a caterpillar to a butterfly is no easy task. The AMC has always been a collection of the brilliance of our network. In addition to AMP staff we have gathered two major groups of AMC organizers to co-curate our process.

AMC Chrysalis Creative Team is a team of highly engaged, long-term AMCers committed to engaging in the year-long Chrysalis process through retreats and planning and hosting Living Room Sessions. Each step along the way, we need our community's feedback as we finalize the future shape of the conference. Living Room Sessions will be hosted by the Chrysalis Creative Team in April and May. They are an opportunity to get updates, offer feedback and share your ideas for the future shape and content of the AMC.

AMC in Chrysalis Wise Council is a team of long-term AMCers committed to offering their ideas and feedback through each phase of chrysalis.
