Art, Music, & Pop Culture Events

Allied Media Conference
Host: Allied Media Projects
Dates: June 18 – 21, 2015
Location: Detroit, MI
At the AMC, we understand media as any way in which we communicate with the world, from zines to breakdancing, to designing neighborhood-based communications infrastructure. We share and create media that exposes, investigates, heals, builds confidence and radical hope, incites dialogue and debate. We demystify technology, not only learning how to use it, but how to design and build our own.  In doing so, we redefine technology’s role and impact in our lives. The AMC creates learning environments for all ages and skill levels, including hands-on workshops, strategy sessions, presentations and performances.

Dhaka Art Summit
Host: Samdani Art Foundation
Date: 5-8th Feb, 2016
Ramna Dhaka, Bangladesh
The Samdani Art Foundation announces the third edition of the Dhaka Art Summit from February 5 to 8, 2016, a pioneering research and exhibition platform for South Asian art that brings together artists, curators, museums, scholars, and visitors from across Bangladesh and the world to discover institutional quality works in a non-commercial environment. The 2014 edition welcomed over 70,000 visitors over three days and registered as one of the most important events in the South Asia region. Projects from the 2014 Dhaka Art Summit have since traveled to the Berlin Biennale, the Queens Museum, NYU Abu Dhabi, Kochi-Muziris Biennale, and the Kunsthalle Basel.
