AFTM Queensland Outsider Art Awards returns in 2020

AFTM Web Banner_Square.jpg

AFTM, a creative initiative of Wesley Mission Queensland (WMQ), supports, exhibits and promotes the work of artists living with adversity, mental health issues, physical or intellectual disabilities, or experiencing homelessness and social isolation.

In 2020, the theme of the AFTM Queensland Outsider Art Awards is “belonging”.  A simple word for a huge concept - whether it be the need to belong or finally having found a place where they do. This compelling exhibition provides the platform for these artists to bring valuable life experience and showcase what ‘belonging’ means to them.

Due to COVID-19, we'll be hosting this thought-provoking exhibition online in September 2020. An exhibition for the Finalists will be hosted onsite at AFTM Gallery & Studios from 28 September 2020. All art will also be available for sale online. 

Entries for the 2020 AFTM Queensland Outsider Art awards are now open. Find out more here.

Art from the Margins gratefully acknowledges the generous support of organisations that are making this year's Awards possible.
