UNTOLD Darwin brings together leading Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, creatives, cultural leaders and academics for a weekend of Indigenous-led conversation and connection.

Designed to deepen understanding, demonstrate interconnectedness and broaden awareness, audiences are invited to explore a diverse range of topics with esteemed Indigenous speakers from across Australia.

Now in its third year, UNTOLD Darwin has become an important contributor to the First Nations-focussed activity that occurs in Darwin across the weekend of the Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards and Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair.
