AMAAS membership consists of media arts organizations. We offer free individual memberships to filmmakers, arts professionals and media artists.
By joining AMAAS your voice is represented in provincial, local and national advocacy.
There are three categories of membership: Media Arts Organizations, Ally Organizations, and Individuals.
Any non-profit organization operating in Alberta which has, as its main activity, creation, production, dissemination, exhibition, distribution or research and experimentation in media arts. Media Arts Organization members must: be a not-for-profit media arts organization that is controlled by a board, the majority of whose members are practicing media artists or media arts professionals such as curators or critics; carry out their primary activities in the province of Alberta; pay artistʼs fees; and share the aims and objectives of AMAAS. This class of member has voting privileges.
Any organization in or outside of Alberta that supports the aims and objectives of AMAAS but is not mandated to pay artist fees. Ally members are those organizations who do not pay artist fees or maintain copyright over independent media artwork but who support AMAAS. This class of member organization does not have voting privileges.
