The 14th annual Allied Media Conference was June 28 – July 1, 2012 in Detroit.Through the AMC, held every summer in Detroit, unite the worlds of media, art, technology, education and social justice. Participants build knowledge and relationships that continue to grow throughout the year.

What exactly did Detroit Summer do there??

This workshop is based on interviews that  detroit summer conducted.

Detroit Summer:Come with a question Leave With a Print

during that process we explained detroit summer and played a game called the question game and we also based the questions around  youth self image.we then used those answers from the game to use an interview. then we asked the audience to creatively impress their self which led to the youth take over screen printing workshop where we showed the audience how to screen print.


Detroit summer stayed at the wane state campus with the dfy or better known as Detroit future youth team.


Of corse not Detroit summer had a fun and education experience. The amc is full of different people from all over the world and is full of parties and that is very cool.
