Feel part of a community, increase knowledge and share resources in collaborative design.


We need sustainable funds and support to enable the ACD community to grow, thrive, and provide quality training, content, and resources to make a difference in your practice and communities.


If you are an organisation that would like to sponsor ACD, we are looking for sponsorship and partnerships for our events, newsletter and Journal.  Please contact for more information. 


Join us as a member. The package offers new and innovative ways to shape and explore your work, actively participate in the ACD community and increase your visibility internationally. 

At this time, we only offer individual membership; however, as we grow, we hope to offer organisational membership.  Meanwhile, please get in contact if you would like to sponsor an event or the ACD Journal.

Membership by Donation

We recognise that these membership categories may not work for everyone. To enable a broad range of people to benefit from the ACD, we have created a membership by donation for community groups, parish and town councils, small voluntary sector organisations, and unwaged individuals. This membership allows free limited access to ACD online resources. Please get in touch with us to find out more:
