Artistic directors of the future is the first membership organisation dedicated to increase the number of culturally diverse artistic leaders in the arts sector.
We are offering you an exclusive opportunity to strengthen your relationship with fellow professionals and producing theatres across the UK, as well as access to bespoke training and resources that will take your leadership to the next level.
Delegate Membership is for a PoC individual from an Asian, Black, Latin/Hispanic, Native American, Indigenous, Pacific Islander, Middle Eastern, or Mixed-Race background who has the ambition of becoming an Artistic Director, Chair Person or Trustee.
Update: 21st April 2020
The official Delegate Membership renewal month is May of every calendar year. You can still register for Delegate membership at any time in the year and receive all Delegate benefits but please note regardless of when you join the membership fee will remain the same and your membership benefits will still expire 30th April until you renew again, therefore to receive 12 months of benefits for £35 the best time to join is May.
If you became Delegate member less than 4 months before this new rule was implemented, i.e. you registered in 2020, please don’t worry, we will extend your membership until 30th April 2021
