About Us

ADFAS is all about the arts.

Members subscribe to a series of enjoyable lectures across a broad spectrum of fine, decorative, contemporary and creative art forms. An annual magazine highlights the latest news across the national and local arts scene.

Our volunteers are involved in a wide variety of activities including heritage and conservation projects, guiding at historic properties and conducting Church Recordings and Studies.

A range of ADFAS Young Arts grants and awards encourages students to gain an appreciation of the arts and supports young artists on their chosen career path.

In many communities, the local ADFAS society has become the focus of cultural activities, connecting people with the arts, and with each other, and enriching the lives of us all.

Anyone with an interest in the arts or who wishes to develop an interest in the arts is very welcome to join.

There are 38 societies across regional and metropolitan Australia.
