One of the best parts of my recent trip to Seattle was giving a talk at Nova, my alternative high school. I thought 4 or 5 students might attend. I was impressed by how many people showed up and the sharp questions they asked. Two students performed spoken word that left me in awe.

The Allied Media Conference cultivates strategies for a more just and creative world. We come together to share tools and tactics for transforming our communities through media-based organizing.
Vision of the Allied Media Conference
Participatory Media to Transform Our Selves and Our World
The Allied Media Conference advances our visions for a just and creative world. It is a laboratory for media-based solutions to the matrix of life-threatening problems we face. Since our founding in 1999, we have evolved our definition of media, and the role it can play in our lives – from zines to video-blogging to breakdancing, to communicating solidarity and creating justice. Each conference builds off the previous one and plants the seeds for the next. Ideas and relationships evolve year-round, incorporating new networks of media-makers, technologists and social justice organizers. We draw strength from our converging movements to face the challenges and opportunities of our current moment. We are ready to create, connect and transform.
