Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As this situation is developing and we are working in uncertain times, we’re pulling together resources to help you find relevant information for the arts, culture and heritage sector.

We have also created a Coronavirus Support Group on Facebook which is open to all sector professionals (not just AMA members) to share resources, ask questions and discuss ways to help each other.

The AMA is here to support you and our sector, as such we are currently offering free webinars to help you during this time, these can also be seen on the resource pages.

Following Government advice the AMA team are all working remotely and will therefore not be picking up calls to the office. All staff can still be contacted by email.

We are continuing to follow Government advice and will keep you updated as we know more.

The AMA conference is the UK’s biggest conference focused on audiences:

* communicating with audiences

* developing audiences

* understanding audiences.

By helping the people who come to our conference engage more audiences more often, and more meaningfully, we help support a sustainable arts, heritage and culture sector, and help more audiences get the benefits from a rich cultural life.

The Theme: You Are Here.

Where do you want to go? And how are you going to get there?

At the AMA conference 2020 you’ll get the rare opportunity to dig into some big questions and come away with new skills.

Understanding where we are as a sector, in our careers, and where our organisations are, helps us move forward with purpose. 

We will be bringing together people  — and organisations, large and small — from all over the UK and the world. We have content that you need and want, no matter where you’re located or where your journey is taking you. 

For useful content and resources to help you on your journey, to get you in the mood for the AMA conference — whether you’re able to join us in person, online with the Digital Ticket, or not — we bring you our Conference Resources Hub, which will be growing and updated regularly.
