The National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Societies brings together over 360 Societies across the UK plus a number of Societies in the rest of Europe and Australasia to promote an interest in the Arts. NADFAS works to advance decorative and fine arts education and appreciation and to preserve our artistic heritage.
The Association supports voluntary projects to maintain historic buildings, record the contents of churches and encourages young people to take an interest in the arts. NADFAS members enjoy making new friends, the stimulus of learning and the satisfaction of volunteering.
Each Member Society of NADFAS is run by a volunteer committee that manages the Society's affairs. Member Societies all belong to a local Area. An Area committee liaises with Socities and orgnises Areas events.
The commitee is headed by the Area Chairman who represents Societies at National level. Each Society in East Surrey organises a full programme of lectures, Special Interest Days and visits.
Details of Society programmes can be found by contacting the individual Society. Contact details can be found on the ‘Societies’ page. Details of Area Events are on the Special Interest Days and the News/Events pages. We look forward to welcoming you to one of our Societies or an Area event in the near future.
