Why Join the MPA?

Together we are stronger. Together we are better. Together we are more inspired and more inspirational. Together we achieve more.

If you are part of the creative and media community, then the MPA is your home. This is where you can come to meet people from other creative sectors. Where you can come to be educated, enlightened and energized. Where you can come for debate, stimulation and knowledge.

We want you to be part of the MPA, to drive it and mould it. It is yours to fashion and define.

It’s easy to sign up for the MPA online, simply fill in the form at the bottom of this page or contact Jennie Woods or Cindy Simmons to discuss your membership type.

The MPA is a not-for-profit organisation. Our aim is to provide members with true value for money. A fact that we hope is reflected in our membership fees.  We want you to become actively involved and share ideas and energy with us.

We aim is to collaborate across all the creative and media sectors in Greater Manchester from freelancers, start ups, digital, media, TV, film, production and all of our creative and media community.
Talent and skills is at the heart of the MPA and we aim to help to find, retain and educate our future talent for this industry.

We support the National Agency Benevolent Society (NABS), as our chosen charity. NABS helps those in need from the creative industries right here in the North West.
