Membership and CCANW operate a joint membership scheme offering services and discounts. Membership is also a way to demonstrate your support for our work.

As a member you gain access to privileged information, to professional opportunities, and to special pricing (including a 10% discount on all events, including our renowned Conference/Summits and residential short courses).  First Fridays will remain open to all, but if there is an appetite from members, we will organise special events and gatherings. It’s up to you, really, to tell us what you’d like and how best we can galvanise and support this community of artists and thinkers who have dedicated their work to the natural world and the environment. Please join!

See who’s already joined and meet a few of our members…
