“I was able to attend due to the bursary that I received and threw myself into as much as possible – I really enjoyed the conference and found it incredibly valuable”
ACW bursary delegate

“It was such a great opportunity to be a bursary delegate last year, as I wouldn’t have had the chance to attend the AMA conference otherwise. In three days I gained insight in all different aspects of arts marketing, met other marketers and discussed our work as well as got new ideas to put into action.”
