The Arts Marketing Association represents a membership of over 600 organisations and over 3000 individuals.  

Our members work in roles across marketing, communications and audience development, helping bring an audience-focused approach to arts, culture and heritage organisations. 

We support that audience-focus with our training, networking and other member benefits. All AMA members can access more than 24 free webinars across the year. Check out what members have been getting access to in the last year! 

If you have a Team membership, you can add as many people as you want to your team for one flat rate. That means everyone can access these benefits. 

If you are a Service Provider, as part of your membership you can also add content to the Service Hub, where our members can find out more about you, you can share resources and more.  

Freelancer members also get a listing in our Freelancer Directory
