become a member

At boom saloon, we believe in the importance of our arts and creative industries – nurturing the vital role we know they will play in working towards a more positive future for us all. Since our launch in 2016, we’ve used profits from our print magazine and creative studio to fund a series of community projects which use creativity to inspire and empower those facing challenges. Having listened to your feedback, we’re now very pleased to present an all new way to support boom saloon’s work: become a member or supporter today and you’ll directly fund our community projects, which are currently working to rewrite the story of dementia in collaboration with STAND – a peer support group for those living with young onset dementia in Fife, Scotland.

As a thank you for supporting this important work for £7.99/ month, our members can enjoy a series of membership benefits, as listed below, which include exclusive features, discounts and events. For those who wish to support our community projects and leave it there, become a supporter for £5/ month and receive regular email updates highlighting all that you’ve made possible. This initiative is driven by the requests of our global community to further their engagement with our movement; we hope you can join us and enable us to continue inspiring and empowering others as we nurture a wealth of incredible potential around the world.

…and you’ll directly fund our community projects

Our community projects use creativity to inspire and empower those facing challenges. To date, they have allowed us to work with a range of extraordinary talents and, together, begin to tackle challenges including forcible displacement, homelessness, substance abuse and dementia. Shaped by the methodology of Asset Based Community Development, they sit at the core of boom saloon and are our reason for existing. Having largely self-funded our projects to date, we’re delighted to be able to answer our community’s requests to more directly support this work and enable you to better the life of another from just £5/ month.

…and receive a number of exclusive member perks

As a thanks for supporting this vital work, our members enjoy the following:

  • 10% unlimited discount on all items at the boom saloon shop
  • Exclusive discounts from the boom saloon community around the world
  • Access to our full archive of features
  • Specially curated city maps and media playlists
  • Free or discounted tickets to boom saloon member events, including meetups, collective viewings and workshops
  • Optional access to our regular email newsletters, exploring the creative endeavours bettering our world

If you prefer to just support our community projects, join us as a supporter and you’ll receive regular email updates highlighting all that you’ve made possible.

Our group membership presents a special offer for groups of up to ten – whether you are part of a company, collective or group of family or friends. Together, you will directly support our community projects and can enjoy the opportunity to incite genuine change whilst coming together for our events and member opportunities.

Frequently asked questions

boom saloon is a global movement to democratise creativity for good via print magazine, community projects and creative studio. We collaborate with people all around the world to achieve this, and use the profits from our print magazine and creative studio to fund our community projects.

These are an ongoing series of projects which use the Asset Based Community Development framework to inspire and empower people facing challenges. These people could be anyone we recognise creative potential in, no matter their background, education or level of experience. Sometimes our projects focus on a specific geography, sometimes a particular demography – but always work with those communities we know to have talent and potential above and beyond what others may see.

All profits from membership directly fund our community projects.

The main benefit of boom saloon membership is the ability to better the life of another. In thanks for this, our members receive a series of perks including special discounts, articles and events.
