The Arts Society (formerly known as NADFAS) works to advance decorative and fine arts education and appreciation, alongside promoting the preservation of artistic heritage. It is a UK based charity with over 91,000 members supporting a network of over 360 local Societies in the UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Within the Essex Area of The Arts Society there are over 2,700 members. Many of the area's societies are actively seeking new members.
Individual Societies bring together groups of like minded individuals through regular meetings, lectures by top experts, study days, visits, tours and a number of volunteering activities including Heritage Volunteering, Church Recording, Church Trails and our Young Arts programmes.
It is a great way to expand your knowledge of the arts as well as have fun and make new friendships.
