Art Fund logo

Art Fund is the charity that connects museums, people and art. For 120 years, they’ve been helping museums and people to share in great art and culture — because they believe that access to art is vital for a healthy society. They do three things, all intertwined. They fund art, helping the UK’s museums to enrich their collections for today and forever. They build audiences, with their National Art Pass opening doors to great culture. And they amplify the museum sector, through their Museum of the Year award and creative events that bring the UK’s museums together. 

Art Fund is supporting the AMA Conference to help museum professionals reach new audiences and raise awareness of the marketing support they can provide for museums, galleries and historic places across the UK. By partnering with Art Fund, you can join 850+ UK museums reaching a new audience of National Art Pass members.
