Art from the Margins
Since 2008, Art from the Margins (AFTM) has been and still is a creative initiative of Wesley Mission Queensland. AFTM has been instrumental in bringing artists together, and bridging the gap between artists living in isolation and the wider community. AFTM supports and promotes the work of artists living with adversity, disadvantage and social isolation, including artists living with mental health issues, physical or intellectual disabilities and homelessness. AFTM currently provides exhibition and professional development opportunities for over 400 artists living in and around the Brisbane area.
IMPORTANT AFTM UPDATE
Art from the Margins thanks you for your ongoing support and commitment to our organisation and want to let you know that the health, wellbeing and safety of our artists, staff and community are our number one priority.
Due to new Australian Federal Government restrictions on indoor venues and recommendations of the Wesley Mission Queensland Coronavirus Response Committee, AFTM Gallery & Studios are temporarily closing, until further notice.
AFTM recognises the important role our exhibitions and workshops play in fostering the creative talents of people living with adversity and disabilities and are committed to delivering visual art programs, opportunities and services through other platforms.
While our facilities are closed, staff are still working on the launch of our new online shop, exploring options for digital delivery of programs, and forward planning for our Art Awards and future exhibitions. For updates, continue to visit our website or follow Art from the Margins on Facebook. If you wish to contact us directly please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 3151 6655.
Take care and we wish you well,
The AFTM team
