Allied Media Projects

Allied Media Projects cultivates media strategies for a more just and creative world. From the unique intersection of media and communications, art, technology, education and social justice, we share and develop models for transforming ourselves and our communities. Since 1999, we have hosted the national Allied Media Conference, which now brings together more than 2000 artists, organizers, makers and doers in Detroit each year. In 2011, we launched Detroit Future to promote broadband adoption and build a local media-based economy.
