Why isn’t membership free?

Aphantasia Network is NOT a venture-funded startup. It’s 100% bootstrapped! Until now, it’s been a labour of love and funded entirely by our two Founders.

That means we don’t have any external funding. In fact, funding for new aphantasia research is difficult to find because aphantasia awareness is still in its infancy.

For the Aphantasia Network to survive and remain a strong advocate for new research and science funding, we need to rely on the generous support of our community. If you find our services valuable and want to be more connected to our community, consider supporting our mission.

What if I can’t afford membership?

Most of our core content will remain free for the community. We never want money to restrict access to critical insights that will help aphantasics with their discovery and understanding. You can access some articles and a public discussion forum, watch event recordings on our youtube channel and subscribe to our monthly newsletter at no cost. 

DO You OFFER MONTHLY PAYMENT PLANS?

Yes, we do! You can sign-up for a monthly membership plan here.

I am a researcher, can I become a member?

Yes! We’d love to welcome you to our community and learn more about your research. With membership, you gain access to our private Discord community, where you will find a channel for research to discuss all the latest studies. We also have a channel for new studies where you can share your research project and recruit participants directly. You can also use these channels or join one of the community meetups to share any updates on the progress of your findings with an engaged and intellectually curious group of individuals. For more participant recruitment options, check out our research collaborations.

Is there a discount for students?
