The Arts Society (formerly NADFAS) works nationally to advance decorative and fine arts education and appreciation, alongside promoting the preservation of artistic heritage. We are a UK-based charity with over 91,000 members supporting a network of over 360 local societies in the UK, 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 Church Recording, Trails of Discovery, Heritage Volunteering and Young Arts 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 annual general meeting, in May 2017 in Birmingham, at which we became The Arts Society (click on the name to access the national website).
