Connectors host meetings and help make sure that AMA knows what’s going on feeding back their insights to make sure we’re responding to the nuances of our sector. 

We know that the challenges in Caernarfon are not likely to be the same as the challenges in Chelsea, and what’s going on in Glasgow is going to be different to Glastonbury. So connectors are really important to help us understand each cultural medium, region and career.

It was my first AMA meet up and hopefully the first of many, it was so valuable to meet others in similar organisations
