What is the Digital Lab?
The Digital Lab transforms digital practice through intensive mentoring, workshops, and peer support — all taking place online. Fellows are matched with an international specialist who mentors their work-based experiments, supporting an agile approach to their digital work.
We work with Single and Joint Fellows from arts and cultural organisations based in England.
What do Fellows gain?
- Regular online meetings with your Mentor to gain guidance for your experiments
- Access to high quality AMA online workshops to develop your skills
- A network of Fellows to support you
- The opportunity to develop together as a cohort of peers and share best practice
- Knowledge in how to adopt a truly agile approach and how to embed this in your role
The Digital Lab includes 5 — 6 of the following webinars:
- SEO and your Audiences
- Google Ads Explained
- Social Media Advertising
- Google Analytics and your Audiences — the basics
- Google Analytics and your Audiences — intermediate
- Making Great Video on your Phone
- Google Tag Manager — an introduction
- Facebook Funnels
Digital Lab participants will work with their mentor to identify which webinars will best support their development. These webinars are also free for AMA members.
What does it cost?
Single Fellow — £150 per person
Joint Fellow — £250 per pair
The true monetary value of the Digital Lab is almost £2,500 per organisation, so the costs have been heavily subsidised by Arts Council England.
“A brilliant way to give new digital experiments a go and begin to grapple with new ways of working in an encouraging, collaborative space.”

“Participation in the Digital Lab has increased my confidence in digital marketing.”
