Allied Media Projects is a non-profit organization headquartered in Detroit. According to its website, "Allied Media Projects cultivate media strategies for a more just and creative world. From the unique intersection of media and communications, art, technology, education and social justice, we share and develop models for transforming ourselves and our communities."


The organization grew out of the Allied Media Conference, an event that from 1999-2006 was held in Bowling Green, OH. In 2007 the conference was moved to Detroit.

​Allied Media Projects was incorporated in November 2009 and again in February 2011.


While the organization is based in Detroit, its work involves organizations and members throughout the United States, Canada, and the world.

In 2009, AMP began to focus more of its organizational energy on local organizing with the creation of the Detroit Future program.
