You Can Now Since 2001
Learning and doing new things together
Membership for individuals and organisations

Individual membership costs £240 per year
Benefits include:

A kick-off session at the outset

We’ll get together over a coffee in person or on Zoom remotely — to learn more about the work you’re doing, and the things that you want to learn and do next.


Professional creative and business support

Our central team is here for you. We can help you with things like pricing, licensing, negotiation, legal questions or other creative and commercial challenges. We can connect you to experts and collaborators. And if you need it we can provide production support to help projects run smoothly.

Your work promoted in our channels

We’ll share what you’re doing in print and online; promoting it to new audiences of clients and collaborators.


Invitations to events

We bring groups of members together to learn more about topics of common interest. You can come to at least four such gatherings over the course of the year.

Join Zoom groups online

Get together with like-minded members from the comfort of your own chair. Learn from subject experts, join discussions and share your experiences. We’ll let you know what’s coming up, what we’re discussing and you can let us know if you’re free to dial in.


Login to our digital learning platform Can

Can is where you can discover an always growing world of curated resources, recommended reading, listening and viewing — all rooted in the things our members tell us they want to learn more about, and what they’ve shared.

Copies of our members’ magazine and access to our Library.

We’ll post you copies of You Can Now Magazine, and you’re always welcome to borrow books from our members’ Lending Library.


But only good ones.
