Conference 2001, Austin: Unleashing Creativity

From June 23 through June 26, 2001, educators, youth workers, students, media literacy and media arts professionals, public health and prevention specialists, gathered for four days of information, inspiration, networking, and respectful dialog about the serious challenges facing media educators today.

The 2001 National Media Education Conference in Austin, Texas, was indeed history-making, with the formal founding of the AMLA, and featured 48 workshops, 6 panels, 6 preconference seminars, 4 special evening events, 3 dynamic guest speakers, and more.

For many, the highlight of the conference was an incredible, culminating Youth Media Production plenary session.
