ADFAS Cairns
ADFAS Cairns is a vibrant society dedicated to a broader understanding of fine arts.

We are a not for profit organisation that is run entirely by volunteers.  We offer eight lectures per year. Two lectures are presented by ADFAS lecturers, the remaining six by The Arts Society UK lecturers; all experts in their field.  Our 2020 lectures inform and illustrate antiques, architecture, African art, Persian quilting and culture, Russian art, French art history, furniture, and bookbinding; the usual to the unusual and more. In the last twenty years Cairns has proudly hosted many world renowned experts, showcasing their passion for their dedicated subjects. Our members are delighted to welcome such diversity to the tropics. In addition to the monthly lectures we offer two Special Interest Half Day Study Tutorials.

Everyone is welcome to attend the lectures, but better still, why not become a member and enjoy the benefits.
