The annual Allied Media Conference in Detroit, MI convenes 2,000 artists, activists, educators, and technologists, all sharing media strategies for a more justice, creative, and collaborative world. The Allied Media Conference has cultivated a cycle of exchange between Detroit and participants from across the country, which has helped kickstart a suite of year-round strategies for digital justice in Detroit. This presentation will survey these principle-driven strategies including "DiscoTech" Discovering Technology fairs; "Detroit Future Media Workshops" teaching digital media skills and their application in education, entrepreneurship, and community organizing; and a "Detroit Future Schools" program training K-12 teachers to use digital media arts in project-based learning experiences that help students understand and shape their worlds.
