Presented by Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair Foundation

Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair (DAAF) is doing things a little differently this year. Ove nine days a new online platform will connect Indigenous arts centres with art buyers, creating wider community awareness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art in innovative ways. The new-look ‘virtual’ fair enables arts centres to showcase and sell their artists’ work to an even broader audience than usual.

A vibrant program of cultural performances, artist workshops and demonstrations, Indigenous food experiences, panel discussions and a children’s collaborative art project will be hosted on the DAAF website.

The popular Country to Couture fashion show has had to be postponed but a new event, the National Indigenous Fashion Awards will premiere with an online ceremony on Wednesday 5 August.

Immerse yourself in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art, design, fashion and culture from 6 – 14 August.
