Freelance membership

We know freelancing places different demands on you than working as an employee, so we offer a freelance member package.

AMA has around 2000 members working with arts and cultural organisations to make better connections with audiences. We support, develop and connect our members through resources, networking and events. We now offer a freelancer membership, designed to help you build your contacts and get the most out of AMA membership.

Freelancers can:

  • List services in our publicly viewable Freelance Directory
  • Join our Freelancers email discussion group, to share knowledge and ask questions of other freelancers
  • Free access to member training webinars
  • Enjoy AMA resources
  • Get member discounts and priority booking

Freelance membership is open to freelancers who are self-employed for just £70 per year.

Member Stories

“My predecessor left a note saying the first thing you must do is join the AMA so I did, and I’ve never looked back.”

“As someone who is reasonably new to freelancing, my listing on the AMA’s Freelancers Directory has proved to be valuable. One of my current clients contacted me after viewing my listing online — after initial conversations and a trial period of working together we have developed a solid working relationship and they have employed me for a six month contract. “
