About us

"The Arts Society" is the new name for "The National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies" (NADFAS). Individual societies add their names to the new title and thus we are now The Arts Society Wolverhampton.

Founded in 1968 by Patricia Fay, The Arts Society (NADFAS) is an arts-based charity, with over 340 local Societies in the UK and Mainland Europe, of which Wolverhampton is one. All associated Societies subscribe to the aims and objects of The Arts Society: the advancement of arts education and appreciation and the preservation of our artistic heritage.
The Arts Society promotes these aims through lectures on the fine and decorative arts in their widest sense, through study days, visits and tours and through volunteering activities, such as Church Recorders, Heritage Volunteers and Young Arts and the giving of grants.
The Arts Society volunteers learn new skills, while making friends and benefiting the community at large. Young Arts Volunteers provide exciting projects and activities aimed at fostering a love of the arts amongst the young. At national and local level, The Arts Society also gives grants to aspiring artists and craftsmen of the future.
