Annual and Day Events
AMA Conference is a highlight of the year, bringing hundreds of members and delegates together to tackle current topics and find new inspiration and approaches to apply.
Digital Marketing Day
Digital Marketing Day provides a deep-dive into case studies, best practice and new opportunities.
From current trends to horizon scanning, Digital Marketing Day covers the full range of fast-changing digital marketing skills. Expect a focus on social media, website experience, content and strategies to engage online audiences, and more.
Inclusivity and Audiences Day
Inclusivity & Audiences Day aims to help delegates expand their awareness, learn, and adapt.
Delegates can take stock of what they are doing and what they could be doing differently, gaining new approaches to their work with audiences as well as in their own thinking and actions.
Reaching New Audiences
Reaching New Audiences was a brand-new event for 2023. It was an opportunity for delegates to think differently about who their audiences are and who they could be, with a focus on groups who are largely under-represented in our audiences; those with disabilities (visible and invisible), young people, and people of colour.
Digital Copywriting Day
Digital Copywriting Day was a brand-new online day event for 2023. It was built to help delegates craft compelling copy that provides a return on their investment every time. The day included a mix of practical learning, case studies and skills-based sessions, offering the latest thinking on the digital landscape and what this means for copywriting.
Audience Diversity Academy
Audience Diversity Academy (ADA) was a programme which AMA ran for 4 years. We’ve overhauled the programme for 2021, and its new incarnation is Show Up, for leaders looking to develop their own skills to enable more diverse organisations and audiences.
We’re proud of the impact ADA achieved, and the work our delegates enabled. Delegates shared their learning in blogs and vlogs — find out more about ADA’s legacy.
AMA ran Digital Lab as a programme for a number of years, encouraging an experimental approach to digital marketing. For 2021, Digital Lab is taking a new form as Heads Up for 2021, with a focus on Digital Social Justice.
Over a hundreds of organisations took part in Digital Lab over the years, with delegates sharing their learning in blogs and vlogs. Read more about what Digital Lab involved and its legacy link
In 2020-2021, AMA ran the Digital Heritage Lab programme, a funded project thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Digital Heritage Lab has its own legacy and resources which remain accessible to all.
Small Scale Development Programme
Small Scale Development Programme (SSDP) is designed for small arts and heritage organisations focused on developing their business.
It ran as a residential in previous years, but in 2020 we went virtual. MicroDigital is our current programme running for Small Organisations — if you missed it in 2021, you can find useful resources from the course on AMAculturehive.
In 2022 we created an online version of the programme exclusively for Welsh organisations.
Breakthrough: Transform into an Inclusive Organisation
Breakthrough is a programme for Chief Executives (CEOs) and their Senior Management Teams (SMTs) to make their organisations truly inclusive for the long-term.
The structured programme brings CEOs and SMTs together to transform their organisations, with a whole-team approach to inclusivity.

By helping marketers and fundraisers integrate their work for more effective results, Shared Ambition can unlock significant benefit.
Strategic Marketing Retreats
AMA’s Strategic Marketing Retreats are intensive residentials that take your marketing, strategy and leadership skills to the next level.
The advanced level is ideal for more senior marketing and communication professionals who are looking to develop as leaders, looking at business strategy in relation to their roles.
The intermediate level is aimed at Marketing Managers who are looking to be more strategic in their marketing and in developing and supporting their teams.
Accessible Marketing & Communications
Accessible Marketing & Communications offered the opportunity for you and your marketing team (or just you if you are the marketing team) to work with a critical friend who could help you make your marketing and communications more accessible for people with disabilities.
