All are welcome to enjoy the feast of art, read the artists stories and vote for People’s Choice Award and Children’s Choice Award.

The 2018 Art from the Margins Outsider Art Awards will be exhibited this year at The Old Museum in Brisbane from 27th September to 1st Oct 2018.

Now in its 11th year, the AFTM Art Award exhibition showcases hundreds of outstanding artists, achieving creatively despite living with adversity and disadvantage, either experiencing social isolation, mental-health issues, physical or intellectual disabilities, or homelessness. The exhibition is an opportunity for artists and community art groups to showcase their artwork to a wider audience.
