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 from 11 - 20 September 2020.
An exhibition for the Finalists will be hosted onsite at AFTM Gallery & Studios from 28 September 2020.

All art will be available for sale online.

Keep an eye on our website, social media and upcoming newsletters for updates on this exciting exhibition.
