Welcome to The Arts Society Hamburg

Lectures cancelled

March and April lectures cancelled

 

Our lectures on 26 March and 23 April, together with the AGM on the same date, have all been cancelled due to the increasing seriousness of the Coronavirus.

 

We wish to ensure that our members and guests are not exposed to any health risks and anyway it is no longer possible to hold such group events.  

 

We hope this will be over by 18 June, when our next lecture is scheduled, but we will keep you informed.  In the meantime, please try to keep well and look after yourselves.

 

Pat Pledger and the Committee

 
The British Decorative and Fine Arts Society of Hamburg e.V. (BRIDFAS) was founded in 1987 to stimulate interest in the decorative and fine arts and to promote a greater awareness of international cultural heritage. Its head office is based in London and it is a leading arts education charity with over 385 Societies worldwide and over 90,000 members. In 2017 the name was changed to The Arts Society and we became The Arts Society Hamburg e.V. In 2018 we celebrated our 30th anniversary and the Arts Society celebrated its 50th!

The Arts Society Hamburg provides an annual programme of illustrated lectures for its members, given in English, mostly by lecturers from the UK, chosen for their expert knowledge about the arts. Study days are also provided, as well as visits to museums and places of interest both in Germany and abroad.

Die British Decorative and Fine Arts Society of Hamburg e.V. (BRIDFAS)  wurde 1987 gegründet, um das Interesse an dekorativen und bildenden Künsten zu wecken und ein größeres Bewusstsein für das internationale Kulturerbe zu fördern.
