Who We Are
The Association of Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (ADFAS) is a group of 34 Societies that offer their members a series of monthly informative and entertaining illustrated lectures plus some workshops covering a broad range of subjects relating to art.
The talks are usually complemented by a friendly social gathering before or after with refreshments. Together, the 34 Societies form the Association of Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Societies, the central body responsible for the overall programming and lecturer schedules. Each local Society is managed by a volunteer chairman and committee who organise the presentation of the annual program of six to nine lectures. Find out more about ADFAS….
