Welcome

We are the Dulwich branch of The Arts Society (formerly NADFAS), a leading arts education charity that brings together people with a shared curiosity for the arts, providing access to world-class lecturers sharing their specialist knowledge. The belief that the arts have the potential to enrich peoples' lives is at the heart of everything we do.

We encourage the pleasure of learning through our programme of evening lectures, as well as visits to places of artistic merit in and around London. The Arts Society's Greater London Area provides a programme of study days providing opportunities for deeper examination of arts-related subjects.

Our lectures are held in a comfortable purpose-built lecture theatre with its own parking. There is no waiting list and membership is open to everyone.

Date: Thursday 14 May 2020, 8.00pm
Lecturer: Eileen Goulding

The Narma Palette and Meidum Geese from the Old Kingdom, the Senoswret III from the Middle Kingdom and the bust of Nefertiti and Nebamun paintings from the New Kingdom all indicate the wealth of Ancient Egyptian riches. They are a sample of the many discoveries that have been displayed and admired by millions of museum visitors around the world. This lecture will look in depth at these treasures, examining the techniques and materials used, who commissioned and owned them, their purpose and hidden meanings.


 

Where we meet

Our lectures take place in the Sixth Form Lecture Theatre, James Allen's Girls' School.
