A cool social justice × media-making conference coming up: the Allied Media Conference, June 25-28, Detroit

You can check out programs from previous years to get a feel for it:


I think a Mastodon workshop, led by ppl from POC-focused instances, would be a perfect fit.

- part 1: what it is, how to join
- part 2: how to start your own instance, how to contribute to development

Don't know if I'll be able to actually go, but would be happy to help develop/submit/fundraise. Haven't gone in several years, but I've previously organized sessions & a programming track.

Thinking particularly of @Are0h @OfficialAdmin @darius

If anyone has any questions or wants to know more, hmu~

@nev @Are0h @OfficialAdmin oh yeah I really need to go to this, I will probably submit a Run Your Own Social workshop if I can

@nev hmmm looks like they haven't put out the call for sessions yet but I'll keep an eye out

@nev @OfficialAdmin @darius I'm not really a conference person, but this is definitely something that would be useful.

Although I will say it feels like our fediverse efforts need to expand past Masto and Plemora.

We just need more than either of those projects are willing to give.

@Are0h @OfficialAdmin @darius absolutely! could touch on ActivityPub/indieweb/ISPs/the revolution etc.

Sign in to participate in the conversation is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
