About

The Arts Society Gibraltar. Formerly known as the Gibraltar Decorative and Fine Arts Society.

May 17th concluded our 7th season as GibDFAS.

On October 18th we commence our 8th season as The Arts Society Gibraltar.

Over the summer we will continue working hard until the season start in October. Work that needs to be done are re-branding in Gibraltar, finalising sponsorship (almost there) and plan the formal press and marketing campaign of sharing our new name and vision.

The next two lecture seasons are already agreed so hopefully you will also decide to renew your membership. As always we reward early renewal with a £5 discount. Membership is a great way to benefit from a great saving from 8 x the normal guest fee of £12. It also helps the Arts Society Society to remain strong going forward. Enjoy tonight and welcome back in October as The Arts Society Gibraltar

Background

NADFAS and now The Arts Society has 14 branches outside mainland UK (and not Australia / New Zealand). Gibraltar became the 10th. Since our start Benehavis, Malta, Jersey, Alicante and even Malaysia have joined. Overall we became the 365th branch of NADFAS. Current total of societies is 387 (highest ever).

Four of those branches are in the south of Spain. The nearest branch holds lectures at the San Roque Golf and Country Club. The others are based in Fuengirola, Nerja and Benahavis. Malta inaugurated in late 2015.

The Arts Society Gibraltar is a non-profit organisation. The society is now full registered as a Gibraltar charity number 211. What is the society all about?
