The 2oth Annual Allied Media Conference takes place in Detroit June 14-17, 2018 on the campus of Wayne State University. The Conference emerges out of 20 years of relationship-building across issues, identities, organizing practices and creative mediums. Since the first conference (then the Midwest Zine Conference) in 1999, people have been compelled by the concept of do-it-yourself media. The zine conference was rebranded as the “Underground Publishing Conference” for a couple years and then became the Allied Media Conference in 2002. The shift to Allied Media attracted more people who were interested in using participatory media as a strategy for social justice organizing. NADINE MARSHALL (pronouns They/Them) is a queer black poet from Detroit who has appeared at TED x U of M (2016), The Rustbelt Regional Poetry Slam in Columbus, OH (2016), and The National Poetry Slam Competition in Oakland, CA (2015). They are the content coordinator for the Allied Media Conference. She joined the team in 2017 and specializes in strategic planning, community engagement, and program development. Nadine graduated from Wayne State University with an MSW in 2017 and hopes to continuously engage her passion to uplift, bridge, and empower minority communities through creative platforms. In 2015 the Conference surpassed 2,500 attendees and now includes. “AMC @ Night,” a five-day music festival during the AMC, showcasing local and national musical talent.
