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
This is free if you are between jobs, but otherwise starts from £70 + VAT per year.
This allows you to add as many members as you wish from your organisation. Prices start from £150 + VAT.

Free regional network meetings
With so many friendly arts marketing folk to share experience and knowledge, I do most of my learning from talking to my peers from a variety of small-scale and large arts organisations, from museums, to dance companies, theatres and visual arts. That’s the real marketing mix.Crayg Ward, Communications & Membership Co-ordinator, Theatr Clwyd
For each region across the UK, you have a local Regional Associate. Your Regional Associate hosts networking meetings which are free for members to attend, to get together and share experiences and learning.

AMA produces AMACultureHive website, which is full of case studies, interviews, research and other useful information which is free and open to anyone, not just AMA members.
AMA members get extra resources on the AMA website, specific to AMA events and membership. This includes things like video highlights from AMA events, detailed research drawn from AMA membership, and the Journal of Arts Marketing (JAM).
We produce JAM twice a year and have recently made it a digital publication. JAM compiles interviews, case studies and thought pieces from members and the wider sector. Members also get access to all the back issues of JAM.
We offer member discounts on our workshops and events.
AMA workshops are more interactive and intimate than our webinars – and are £55 for members, and £75 for non-members.
Workshops in 2022 included:
- Plan your Social Media Campaign
- Copy That – words that work
- Create Great Social Media Content
- Understanding Analytics
- Building Your Anti-Racist Culture
Events in 2022 included:

Other events AMA ran regularly prior to the pandemic included Copywriting Day.
Affinity Groups are safe spaces to activate and raise the voices of members who have not been ‘seen’ within our membership.
The first group to launch will be for AMA members who self-identify as Melanated Global Majority. In-person and online events are currently open to book onto for interested members to find out more & how to get involved.
AMA has really been a lifeline for me (and I believe many others) during these difficult times and the work you all do is really amazing!Gabriele Neuditschko, Freelancer
