The Foundation of the Alliance for Community Media (ACM) will hold a Youth Media Summit on February 27, 2013 at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

In addition to the Minneapolis Summit, upcoming events this year include the 2013 ACM Annual Conference in San Francisco in May and another Youth Media Summit in New York, New York in the fall.

This event is free to members of the community, but registration is required and space is limited. To register, please visit the Youth Media Summit website or http://www.allcommunitymedia.org.
