Liskeard Arts Society

www.liskeardartssociety.org.uk

Liskeard Arts Society (was LIDFAS) is a member society of The Arts Society (https://theartssociety.org/). It was formed to bring together people who are curious about and interested in human artistic achievement in the world about us. So we give a series of beautifully illustrated lectures, and arrange visits to museums, galleries, houses and gardens, allowing you to increase and broaden your knowledge of art in the widest sense of the word, in the company of other like-minded people; our meetings are characterised by plenty of animated conversation.

Our annual programme includes nine monthly lectures and two Discovery Days on a wide range of subjects by Arts Society lecturers, all experts in their field. The subjects cover topics from sculpture and ceramics, to historic figures such as the Queen of Sheba and Hildegard of Bingen, to the history of underwear, medieval music, theatre, architecture and Santa Claus (see Lectures). We also organise day visits and longer tours to places of artistic interest.

Most of our members come from South East and East Cornwall; members from other areas are always welcome to join us.
