With Coronavirus pandemic reducing it's impact, WM Area societies have reinstated programmes of live lectures and events. For further information please visit the individual society website.
Please see the News page re our new website!
The Arts Society, formerly known as NADFAS, seeks not only to advance the education and appreciation of all aspects of the arts, but also to promote the preservation of our artistic heritage. We are a UK-based charity with over 91,000 members supporting a network of over 360 local societies in the UK (grouped into 19 discrete areas), Europe and Australasia.
From the Welsh borders to Warwickshire and Staffordshire, there are 17 individual societies in the West Midlands Area, details of which can be found in the Societies section. Our societies bring together groups of like-minded individuals through regular meetings, lectures by top experts, days of special interest, visits, tours and a number of volunteering activities which include Trails of Discovery, Heritage Volunteers and Arts Volunteering programmes. You are warmly invited to become a member and discover a stimulating and enjoyable way to expand your knowledge of the arts and make new friendships! Do explore the wide range of activities we promote by browsing this website.
We were delighted to host the national committee and so many members from far and wide at the final NADFAS AGM in May 2017 in Birmingham, when we formally became The Arts Society (click on the name to access the national website)
Finally, the new version of this website, launched in December 2021, is currently being updated and populated to include the latest programme of activities throughout the West Midlands Area. We hope you enjoy getting involved!
