ANIME ARTISTS: As an anime artist, there are many ways to become involved with the museum. We encourage anime artists to take advantage of our free artist page, which is posted to the website for all to see.

PRESENTERS FOR THE TRAVELING EXHIBITS: We have prepared our Traveling Exhibit and Presentation so that it may be conducted by an energetic presenter with a history of watching anime and a current familiarity with anime culture.

Artist experience preferred.

This can also include event and cosplay photography.
PUBLIC RELATIONS: Those with public relations experience are needed to work on composing media releases and aid in raising funds for the AAM.
RESEARCH: A large part of our mission is to organize and catalogue anime art and culture. To accomplish this, we need researches to help us keep a finger on the pulse of the anime world. Researchers can expect to locate and collect academic materials to be made available through our museum as well.
SOCIAL MEDIA: Anime Artists flourish by sharing their art on social media sites. We want to create a central location for artists to garner the exposure they need to move forward on their art journey. We are starting this monumental task by dedicating our social media feeds to sharing those artists and their work to our followers. In addition, we are seeking news articles about anime that bring to light the many ways anime flourish outside of the TV screen (such as crossing over into musical theater, live-action film, tourism, and so on).
WEBSITE MANAGER: As the museum continues to grow, the task of maintaining the website becomes greater. We are seeking someone with website management experience for fixing website bugs as they arise, creating artist pages, and monitoring our growth in visitors and international reach.
