Our training and events help you get the skills you need to reach and build relationships with your audiences — this can include visitors, communities, service users, online audiences, customers, social media followers, partners, stakeholders. 

We help bring a more audience-focused approach to your work and organisation, and makes sure you are set up to succeed.  

If you work in an arts and/or heritage organisation, and are responsible for marketing, communications and audience development, our training will help you reach the audiences you need.  

We recognise that to do this successfully, you need a specific mix of skills and knowledge. We’re here to support that development. 

We offer training and events across the year, with webinars free for members, and with member discounts on all other training and events. Discover more about our previous events

The AMA also offers sponsorship opportunities for some of our events.
