Attention media-makers, artists, technologists, and all who work towards a more just, creative and collaborative world! The AMC is accepting proposals for tracks, practice spaces and network gatherings for the 17th annual Allied Media Conference, June 18-21, 2015 in Detroit.
WHAT ARE TRACKS, PRACTICE SPACES, AND NETWORK GATHERINGS (TPSNG)?
A Track is a series of AMC sessions that are joined by a shared theme. Examples of tracks include: Media Strategies for Transforming Justice, Community Radio, and Sci-fi for World-building and Survival.
A Practice Space is a fixed space at the AMC that features ongoing activities and hands-on sessions around a theme. Examples of practice spaces include: Transformative Arts, Movement//Movement, and the Future Design Lab.
A Network Gathering is a day-long mini-conferences convened by a local or national network on the Thursday of the AMC. They can be open or closed meetings. Examples of past network gatherings include: International Trans Women of Color, Education for Liberation, Research Justice.

I really want to do a library-focused track, but I worry about getting enough people involved / enough sessions created.
