If you’d like to help us make our events even more accessible, you could help support our work by funding a bursary, either for a person or organisation to take up AMA membership, or to attend an event. Or, we can help share your work with our members through:

  • Full sponsorship
  • Sponsored Session
  • Sponsored Audio Session
  • Video Adverts  / Static Adverts
  • Solus Email

We’re really open to new ideas. Contra-deals are good too. Our Strategic Partnerships Manager is Ciara, who’s always happy to hear from people wanting to work with us: ciara@a-m-a.co.uk.

Become a Member

We’ve over 2000 members from all types of arts and cultural organisations. From Aakash Odedra to Z-Arts and everything in between… Be it music venue or museum, arts centre or architectural landmark, we aim to offer something for all organisations, big or small. Whatever level you’re working at, from CEO to first job – if you’re working to bring audiences and arts and culture together, we’ve got the skills, support and knowledge you need to succeed.

We offer membership for individuals and teams. We’ve also recently launched a Between Jobs membership, to help keep everyone connected in these troublesome times.

Become a Bursary recipient

We know not everyone can afford membership right now. While our Between Jobs membership aims to catch people who are currently out of work, and keep them connected for free, we want to make what we do as easy to access as possible. With thanks to supporters like Arts Council Wales, we’ve a number of bursaries to make the Arts Marketing Festival even more affordable.

If you want to offer a bursary, contact ciara@a-m-a.co.uk. If you want to apply for a bursary, they’ll be listed as they become available over on our Bursary page.

Thank you to all our Sponsors

If you’ve got a Festival Ticket you can also join Art Fund in Virtual Museum Tours as part of the Festival Fringe

Art Fund is the national fundraising charity for art. We’re independently funded, in no small part thanks to our 159,000 National Art Pass holders. We help museums acquire and share art across the UK,  support the development of curators, and inspire people to visit. (Did you know we also offer a free ticketing system, Art Tickets, developed by and for museums? And more digital platforms too… Find out more here.)

Art Pass holders get a great deal too – free entry to over 240 museums, galleries and historic places, 50% off major exhibitions, and Art Quarterly magazine.  Plus they get to vote in the Art Fund Museum of the Year, our annual prize.

Art Fund is thrilled to be in partnership with the AMA for this unique digital festival and in doing so helping us all take steps to a better and more resilient future.
