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.
Spring is here and so is AFTM’s long anticipated National Biennial Outsider Art Awards.
Come and check out our latest exhibition, The 2019 AFTM National Biennial Outsider Art Awards and Exhibition, showing Monday 2 September – Saturday 5 October 2019.
The 2019 AFTM National Biennial Outsider Art Awards and Exhibition features 60 artworks by new and emerging practitioners living with disadvantage. AFTM currently provides exhibition and professional development opportunities for artists living in the greater Brisbane region and wider Queensland community. A key part of the awards was to extend the AFTM reach nationally for the first time since the organisation’s inception.
