[BKARTS] Independent Media Conference AKA Allied Media Conference

Speaking of the human race and our ability to think...the Allied Media
Conference is coming up again. I've never attended, but I enjoy their
updates and their purpose. For other Independent Media buffs out there,
below is the announcement for this year's conference in June in Ohio.

Hello everyone!

This is certainly a crucial time for independent media around the world, and
we're getting more excited about the this year's Allied Media Conference as

[3] AMC PHONE TREE: Please help us spread the word about the Allied Media
Conference by emailing the following post to friends, allies, and colleagues
that you think should be coming. AMC is all about connecting our extended
communities, and word-of-mouth is the best way to make sure we're all
present and accounted for. Cut. Paste. Disseminate. Repeat:

If you believe communities should control their media...

If you believe everyone should have the tools to create and distribute their
own books, movies, music, newspapers, and more...

If you believe communication is a human right...

You should be at the Allied Media Conference.
June 18-20, 2004.
Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, OH

Every year in June, hundreds of the most passionate people from the world of
independent media converge on Bowling Green, Ohio, for the Allied Media
Conference. The AMC focuses on sharing skills, building alternatives to
corporate media, and using media for positive social change. In addition to
hands-on, DIY workshops, the conference includes film screenings, artist
presentations, and a large exhibition hall to share our work. There are
caucuses for video activists, community newspapers, and Indymedia members
and a series of workshops for educators on using independent media in the
classroom. Set in a small, midwest town, it's also a space to strengthen our
community and enjoy each other's company.
