ADFAS Newcastle

ADFAS Newcastle provides for its members a yearly programme of nine illustrated early evening lectures given by accredited and expert Overseas and Australian lecturers, delivered in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Special Interest Mornings allow those members who wish, to take a more detailed look at a particular topic, and excursions to an exhibition or place of interest, often with privileged access, are part of the programme.

Everyone with an interest in the arts is welcome to join ADFAS or come to a lecture as a guest. Lectures are approximately of one hour duration and lecture topics cover a wide range of topics from all over the world: Fine Arts, Painting, Indigenous Art, Sculpture, Architecture, Archaeology, Photography, Literature, Garden design, Music, Silver, China, Rugs, Glassware, Mosaics and more. Whether you are an expert or a complete novice, you are sure to find that the lectures bring new information and a fresh perspective. An excursion to an exhibition or place of interest is also arranged during the year.

Lectures are held in the Hunter Theatre Hunter School of Performing Arts Lambton Road Broadmeadow at 6.30pm. Every lecture and Special Interest Morning occurs on a Monday. Each lecture is followed by light refreshments and a convivial social forum. Check out our 2017 lectures and learn more about us.
