Dans un souci de résistance aux effets de la globalisation et de l’hyper-concentration des industries culturelles et créatives, l’AMI collabore, mutualise et coproduit.

Elle participe au renforcement de l’attractivité du territoire en consolidant un écosystème professionnel durable et équitable pour les artistes et les opérateurs culturels. Elle s’inscrit dans divers réseaux de la filière et participe à la co-construction de politiques culturelles à l’échelle locale et internationale
