Kevin Amos is assembling together once again a dynamic group of folks from international, local and national levels that he has been associated with throughout his 31 years in broadcasting and the arts. Amos has a rolodex filled with industry contacts. He's also seen the arts and media industries change in unprecedented ways -- for better and for worse -- as the digital revolution has unfolded.
On Saturday November 19, 2011, Amos will gather friends and colleagues from around the country for his third "Each One, Teach One" conference. This year the event will take place at the Union Project, a multi-purpose community center located in the Highland Park section of Pittsburgh's East End. (www.unionproject.org)
The event brings together a wide array of music, broadcasting and journalism professionals, who discuss everything from the local music scene to navigating the ever-evolving world of online content.
It conference will take place from 8:30AM-4:30PM. Admission is free of charge and open to the public.
Topics in 2010 included copywright issues, preserving music history and musical legacy, how artists can get airplay on today's commerical radio, social media marketing and promtion in addition to how to develop projects within the local media community.
Amos states, "We have gotten some very exciting proposals from past participants as well as contributors who will take part on panels this year. The conference is important for young people,consumers, music fans in general as well as the artists. It provides an excellent opportunity for networking. The information that will be shared is invaluable and is being provided at no cost. The participants are donating their time and are willing to share information. Most conferences of this nature costs hundreds and in some cases, thousands of dollars. All we are asking everyone to do is just show up to take in the knowledge shared."
Bob Davis, owner and founder of soul-patrol.com and also the former black music director at radioIO.com gave the keynote address for the 2010 conference and moderated a panel on hip hop music, says the event was a great forum for sharing ideas and networking. Davis sums it up by saying, "It introduced students and local artists to the many attendees from around the country, and allowed participants to brainstorm together. I'm looking forward to this year's conference. My observation of this event is that all of the participants, regardless of their role, were willing to make that level of commitment to each other. Watching important people from my distant past, interacting and making these levels of commitment to others that they had never met before about the future was an exciting thing for me to witness. And that is what inspired me."
