AMA Arts Marketing Festival 2020 Bursaries
What is the festival?
The AMA Arts Marketing Festival will be tailored to experience online; a space to address the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Black Lives Matter protests, and the climate crisis, on our work and on the sector.
We have an opportunity to be creative, to experiment and try new things. We are creating a brand-new event, in a new way, in response to the changing world.
The festival will bring together a community of arts & culture marketers, who will deepen their knowledge and understanding of their work, and share learning from their experiences particularly over the past 9-12 months.
We are here for our membership and for the sector; ready to share new thinking, support professional development, and help join the dots in their thinking.
