Become an AMA member
The AMA membership is made up of over 2000 members. Our members work in marketing, communications and audience development across cultural organisations including art centres, theatres, museums, galleries, festivals and more.
You can join as an individual member, or you can join as a group of 4 or more. We also have memberships designed for freelancers, small organisations – with ten or fewer staff and classed as a ‘micro-entity’ by HMRC, and those currently between jobs.
Applications for membership bursaries supported by Arts Council of Wales are now open for arts and culture professionals based in Wales.
“The AMA connected me with leading minds and expertise on audience development and leadership through the Future Proof Museums programme and supported my growth in confidence to work towards achieving my ambitions…. They platformed my voice and my thoughts, challenged and stretched me to push through my barriers and reflect on my future trajectory.”
