Welcome to The Arts Society Oxford – TASO. You may have known us as Oxford Decorative and Fine Arts Society before we changed our name on 13 September 2017.  Our website aims to give you an introduction to who we are and what we do, but please feel free to contact us by email info@theartssocietyoxford.org.uk if you would like any further information.

Launched in October 2009, we now have 500 members.  Our aim is to promote the knowledge, appreciation and enjoyment of the arts through a programme of ten lectures a year and a varied range of study days and visits.

We also support art education and heritage conservation through charitable activities.

We aim to be a friendly society, offering our members an opportunity to enjoy our programme amongst other like-minded people in a welcoming environment.

We are one of nearly 400 societies in the UK and abroad affiliated to The Arts Society, which has 90,000 members worldwide.   We are also part of the Wyvern Area of The Arts Society through which we have contact with other local societies.
