Corporate Sponsors & Partners

Your support will make a real difference to someone's life. Your support helps break down social barriers, ignorance and prejudice. With your help, AFTM can continue to offer quality programs and services to artists living in isolation - and help bridge the gap between them and the wider community.

We invite you to consider a partnership with Art from the Margins. AFTM's partnerships are built on shared goals, close collaboration and mutual benefit. We strive to understand who our partners are, how they operate, and what they stand for. Art from the Margins allows our corporate sponsors, partners, and their staff to become involved in the activities that make a real difference to our artists.

The generous support of our corporate sponsors and partners is essential to the growth and development of the AFTM program.

Art from the Margins acknowledges the very generous donations received from the Brisbane Commandery of the Order of St John of Jerusalem Knights Hospitaller and its members. This significant financial gift will support Art from the Margins 2015 program of art workshops and professional skills development workshops. AFTM’s “Phoneographer” workshop and professional artist card making workshop are examples of how artists are benefitting from this support. A new AFTM workshop teaching artists how to photograph their own artwork will be held on April 15 – also made possible with the support of the Order. Thank you from Art from the Margins and all the participating artists
