THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF DECORATIVE AND FINE ARTS, ENLISTS THE CHANDOS TO
HELP CREATE A NADFAS SOCIETY ON THE ISLAND OF MALLORCA.
The founder of the Chandos grew up partly on the Island of Mallorca and has always loved it. So he was delighted to be asked to help with the setting up of a NADFAS on the island.
Although it calls itself National, NADFAS is decidedly international and the Chandos founder is lecturing to NADFAS societies during his lecture tour of Australia and New Zealand in 2014. The association fulfils a similar role as the British Museum in spreading cultural understanding around the world and of course this endeavour is at the heart of the work of the Chandos Foundation.
Various possible leads are currently being pursued which will include appointing a chairman, who would set up a steering committee to find a suitable location and build up the membership. As a general rule, for the society to be sustainable, there needs to be an English speaking membership of 150, paying a subscription of around €50 per year for 10 lectures, which most would agree is excellent value.
Not only is Mallorca considered to be ready for such cultural advances but if a fine setting and vibrant social mix is achieved, such a society always attracts the interest of business, where the opportunity for cooperation is obvious.
If anyone is interested in helping to progress this exciting project they can contact the Chandos or follow the link below.
