A wide cross-section of the independent media sector will convene in Philadelphia for NAMAC and ACM’s first-ever Joint National Conference. This conference will bring together creators, thinkers, policy makers, administrators, and funders to hear the most current thinking about the field’s future opportunities, to create a national platform for the media arts, and to strengthen our networks. Structured around one or more key theme areas, each day allows all who attend an opportunity to hear, to participate, and to chart our future together. This year’s theme is State and Main: Intersecting Networks, Communities, and Generations
The early bird registration deadline is July 8. PhillyCAM members should be sure to sign up as a NAMAC affiliate member first and then register here for the conference.
Join hundreds of media makers, technologists, artists, policy wonks, activists and community leaders for three days of panels, plenary sessions, workshops, skillshares, design jams, networking, parties, exhibits, screenings, tours and more.
