Tracks and Network Gatherings
As we approach the second year of the COVID pandemic and continue to experience abrupt alterations to the way we have historically convened, organized, and gathered, we are ignited and uplifted by the collective brilliance of our community in cultivating an expansive and healing hybrid AMC2022. Through an open call for proposals this year, we were able to select 25+ Track and Network Gatherings for AMC2022.
- A Track is a series of sessions connected by a shared theme.
- A Network Gathering is a one or two-day mini-conference convened by a Detroit or national network.
All Tracks and Network Gatherings at the AMC fall under the larger umbrellas of media for liberation and visionary organizing:
Media for Liberation
Tracks or Network Gatherings that contextualize, advance and explore any form(s) of media (art, technology, design, storytelling, journalism, etc.) and how our media-making can further an ongoing process of personal, collective, and systemic transformation.
Tracks or Network Gatherings that grow our organizing capacity to envision and create a world in which we:
- care for ourselves, each other, other species, and the planet
- dismantle supremacist systems as they operate upon us and within us
- assume responsibility for creating new liberatory ways of being
- cultivate life-affirming joy
