On the road to Detroit

allied media headerI’m heading out to the Allied Media Conference in Detroit.

Stay tuned for videos and posts along the way!

I will be co-presenting this workshop on Friday afternoon:

TOUR: Eco-Media in Motion: Messages from Detroit (Kid Friendly)
Presenters: Climate Confluence Network; Green Guerrillas Youth Media Tech Collective; Messages in Motion; Outta Your Backpack Media; Remedia; Toxic Soil Busters Co-op
TRACK: Eco-Justice Media Making for Sustainable Communities

This session will encourage creative use of media tools and technology to connect social and environmental justice issues. Beginning with a short participatory discussion on the ways in which we engage with nature from a perspective of aesthetic appreciation—as well as the ways in which media can either alienate us from, or draw us closer to, connections with our environments—this two-part bus tour/media-making workshop will take us beyond the conference space to learn about, reflect upon, and co-create eco-media that connects participants local work with environmental justice issues facing residents of Detroit. Artists, beat makers, broadcasters, DJs, grease car drivers, journalists, metaphysicians, off-grid survivors, photographers, poets, videographers, and all others will be invited to document their reflections on the tour through their creative lens, and then collectively work on a multi-media collage that will be shared with AMC2010 and online.
