50 years of NADFAS - What is it? NADFAS - The National Association for Decorative and Fine Arts was set up fifty years ago and became a registered charity in 1972. Following re-branding in 2017 the association is now known as The Arts Society with branches all over the country.

 The charitable aims concern both arts education and the giving of aid for the preservation of the artistic heritage of the UK and other countries. Individual societies all over Britain, France, Spain and Australia, arrange lecture and study programmes.

Young Arts projects support young people in the arts, crafts and preservation world through donations and sponsorship. Heritage Volunteers give practical help in the field of conservation.
