About Amplify 

We write, produce, craft, investigate, report as a means to tell our and our communities stories, because the stories we hear about us are not told by us. As storytellers, we contribute to and preserve culture, we entertain with anecdotes, and most importantly, we shape the popular narratives, fictional or factual, that inform public opinion and in turn, public policy.

Amplify is a chance to connect with other storytellers, learn from their mastery, and explore issues that influence your work including race, class, community, and ethics. Keynotes include Glynn Washington from WNYC’s Snap Judgment, Aimee Allison, President of Democracy In Color, Rhodessa Jones, Director of The Medea Project, and Mina Morita, Artistic Director of Crowded Fire Theater.
