About the AMC

The Allied Media Conference is a biennial gathering curated with care by people making media for liberation: film, radio, zines, dance, technology, magic, and much more.

Since AMC launched in 1999, it’s convened thousands of people from all over the globe, dreaming together to solve the most pressing problems of our day. Since relocating to Detroit in 2007, it’s become one of the most important hubs for creative social change in North America.
