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.
Come and check out our latest exhibition, 'Catching Light' AFTM Foto Group and VERGE Collective Exhibition, showing 24 November 2018 until 12 January 2019.
'Catching Light' is a showcase of photography and new media artworks from AFTM Foto Group artists', VERGE Collective members, and artworks created through collaboration between both groups. This showcase is the first of our suite of Inspired Artists in Residence artists' mentorship and residency projects.
This project is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
