AMP Blog: allied media projects
Allied Media Projects cultivates media strategies for a more just, creative and collaborative world. We serve a network of media makers, artists, educators, and technologists working for social justice. Our work is grounded in Detroit and connected to places across the globe.
In our story-centered communications strategy, we aim to amplify voices within this network; hold space online and offline for innovative storytelling; and shift dominant narratives through our engagement with new, radical, and traditional forms of communicating with the world.
AMP is hiring a Communications Director to work with our Executive Director and other senior staff to set the editorial direction for a multi-media, multi-channel communications strategy that tells the story of AMP’s programs and our vision for a more just, creative, and collaborative world.
There have been some big changes around here with recent staff additions and departures. Meet the new additions!
“Changing the Conversation” Report Aims to Bridge the Gap Between Foundations & Community Organizers
Allied Media Projects and Detroit People’s Platform have published a new collaborative research report: “Changing the Conversation: Philanthropic Funding and Community Organizing in Detroit". The report is the culmination of a two-year project to develop recommendations for how philanthropists might better serve grassroots communities.
Allied Media Projects recently developed a "Strategy Screen" to help us evaluate opportunities. On a consistent basis, AMP is presented with opportunities for funding, partnerships, public presentations and outreach, program expansion, and consulting others on their initiatives, campaigns, and ventures. It was not enough for us to just follow our instincts as we evaluated these opportunities.
