For individuals working in the performing arts at any stage of their career

"A network, a resource, a support, and a great source of knowledge."  (Yvonne Murphy, Omidaze Productions)

Professional Membership gives you valuable opportunities to develop your contacts, skills and experience. This membership is designed to keep individuals working in the arts informed, effective and connected, allowing you to flourish in your chosen career, at whatever stage you are at.

In light of the Coronavirus pandemic and in recognition of the continuing financial challenges faced by the sector and freelancers in particular, we have introduced a 50% reduction in membership fees for Professional members in 2021:

  • £40 per annum when the Member is earning under £26,500 per annum (can be paid by quarterly direct debit) - this is a 50% discount for 2021 on the standard £80/yr rate  
  • £77.50 per annum when the Member is earning £26,500 or more per annum (can be paid by quarterly direct debit) - this is a 50% discount for 2021 on the standard £155/yr rate   

These prices will take effect for Professional memberships taken out online from 1 January 2021 onwards and any Professional memberships renewed in 2021.
