Let Detroit Future Media 2013 begin!
This will be the third round of Detroit Future Media. In this cycle, our goal is to deepen the relationships and skills that have grown through the Detroit Future networks over the past two years.

DFM2013 is designed for those that are 16 or older, have a basic understanding of computers and passionate about positively transforming Detroit and meet the requirements below:
  • Detroit Future Media 2011 and 2012 Alumni
  • Digital Stewards
  • Detroit Future Schools teachers and artists

  • Partners and members of the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition
Participants will receive an orientation to media-based community organizing and then apply to one of four focus areas: Education, Entrepreneurship, Transformative Art Practices, or Digital Stewardship.

We are also excited to introduce five new workshops and instructors to the curriculum: Audio Podcasting, Beatmaking, Wearable Electronics, Digital Photography, and 3D Video!

Participants will be required to complete a media-based organizing project of their choice, that works towards their vision for the future of Detroit. These projects will blend knowledge and skills learned in the focus area classes with media workshops. To learn more about this year’s program click here.

The Detroit Future Media Workshops are made possible through the Ford Foundation and a grant awarded to the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition (DDJC) by the Broadband Technology Opportunity Program of the American Recovery And Reinvestment (Stimulus) Act.

The Detroit Digital Justice Coalition is comprised of people and organizations in Detroit who believe that communication is a fundamental human right. We are securing that right through activities that are grounded in the digital justice principles of: access, participation, common ownership, and healthy communities.
