Enriching lives through art

The Arts Society Al Andalus (previously known as Benahavis) was established in 2012 and is part of a global network of local Arts Societies. There are 385 throughout the UK, Mainland Europe, Australia and New Zealand, representing a worldwide membership of nearly 100,000.


The Arts Society's objective is to promote the enjoyment, knowledge and awareness of the Arts internationally and to stimulate interest in the cultural heritage of Spain.

Our society is friendly, active and thriving with our members representing many nationalities who are passionate about the Arts. Our illustrated art talks run from September through to May and cover a wide range of artistic and cultural interests. Everyone is welcome, come and join us!


The Society's ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING will be held on 25th June

Venue - El Paraiso Golf Club, Avenida de la Gardenia, El Paraiso Medio, 29688, Estepona

Coffee or tea will be available from 11:45.
The Meeting start time will be 12 noon, if a quorum is present. If there is not a quorum at 12, the meeting will start at 12:30.

Note: Although the members voted to change the name of the society at the last AGM (and a subsequent poll of members decided that it should be Al Andalus Arts Society), the lawyers acting for the society have failed to complete the necessary changes to the Constitution. The AGM will therefore be held in the name of The Arts Society Benahavis.


At the AGM, we will be discussing whether the current format of the society, based around illustrated talks, will continue into the future.
