Presented by Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair Foundation

Experience the rich diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art, design and culture at the 16th Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair (DAAF).

The only national event of its kind, DAAF has secured a reputation as one of the country’s most significant and internationally recognised arts events, creating a unique opportunity to connect with and ethically purchase artwork directly from over 75 Indigenous owned Art Centres.

This year, the Fair returns to Darwin Convention Centre, but will also have an online store for those unable to attend in person.

Showcasing the work of over 2,000 emerging and established artists and designers, the Fair provides a space to meet and learn from the variety of different cultural groups from across Australia. From our most remote desert and coastal regions, to rural and urban communities, a wide range of styles, mediums and products are presented and available for purchase, including paintings on canvas, bark paintings, works on paper, sculpture, didgeridoos, fibre art, textiles, fashion and cultural regalia.

Immerse yourself in the vibrant public program of traditional dance, workshops, artists talks, children’s activities, food and film.

Come and engage with the contemporary creations of the oldest continuous living culture in the world.
