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 public 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.
