Each year AMC participants experience the electric energy of AMC@NIGHT, from finding liberation on the dancefloor to singing our hearts out at karaoke. The Black Independence Celebration hosted by AMFM and The Gathering: An AMC Youth Party hosted by Motor City Street Dance Academy are examples of past auxiliary events that showcased the  brilliance of organizers in our network. 

AMC2020 will support up to six auxiliary nighttime events  curated by cultural organizers who have experience producing high quality, accessible and safe virtual events.

We are looking for a range of events that are engaging, fun, and showcase artists working at the intersection of social change. Selected AMC2020 @Night Auxiliary Events will be required to provide their own digital infrastructure and technical support. The AMC will promote the event and direct participants to the event location (such as Instagram Live, Twitch, Youtube, Zoom, etc.) 

The AMC is especially excited to support events curated by organizers who identify as BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA+.


To support selected AMC2020 @NIGHT Auxiliary Events the AMC will provide:

  • A $500 mini-grant 
  • Use of the AMC2020 Design Kit of Parts to create promotional materials for your event
  • Promotion of your event on the AMC website before and after the conference 

You can apply to be an AMC2020 @NIGHT Auxiliary event by filling out this form. The deadline to apply is June 30th, 2020. Applicants will be contacted about the status of their application by July 7th, 2020.
