Welcome to
Art from the Margins

Since 2008, Art from the Margins (AFTM) has been instrumental in bringing artists together and bridging the gap between artists living in isolation, the public and the wider community. We have made a commitment to assist artists whose creative development is limited by disadvantage. AFTM currently provideds exhibtion and professional development opportunities for over 200 disadvantaged artists living in and around the Brisbane area.
