This year the AMC features 19 amazing, participant-organized tracks. A track is a series of sessions united around a shared theme or strategy. These tracks are coordinated by diverse networks who will use the AMC to deepen their relationships and forge alliances across networks, to showcase their current media-based organizing practices and to develop new ones.
We invite you to submit a session proposal for AMC2011 that aligns with one of these tracks OR is completely outside of these tracks. Your session proposal does not have to fit within one of these tracks.

NEW FOR AMC2011: PROPOSE AN "ONGOING ACTIVITY" OR "CONSULTATION STATIONS"
You can propose different types of sessions: workshops, strategy sessions, caucuses, film screenings, panel discussions. This year we have added ongoing activities and consultation stations to the types of sessions that can be proposed.
An ongoing activity is a continuous activity that you host throughout the conference weekend. For example, this could be a radio broadcast, a screen-printing lab, a non-stop dance-party. Or you could offer to facilitate a cohort of people, connected around a shared identity or access need, that you want to roll with throughout the conference weekend, providing mutual support, idea-sharing, and fun. (The creating collective access crew is a great example of this type of ongoing activity.)
A consultation station is a station in the AMC media lab, where people can participate in ongoing media demonstrations, or work on a project over an extended period of time. Some examples of this are a video-editing station, a computer-building station, or a social media station.
