15th Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair (DAAF)
Experience the rich diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art, design and culture at the 15th 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 70 Indigenous owned Art Centres.
Showcasing the work of over 2000 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. Coming together over three days on Larrakia Country each August, from Australia’s 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. From paintings on canvas, bark paintings, works on paper including limited edition prints, sculpture, didgeridoos, through to fibre art, textiles, fashion and cultural regalia.
DAAF is free to attend and taking no commission on artworks sold, ensures that 100% of all sales made go directly back to support the artists and their communities.
Alongside the Fair, DAAF invites you to immerse yourself in the vibrant Public Program of traditional dance, workshops, artists talks, children's activities, food and film. The DAAF Foundation is also proud to once again be presenting the Country to Couture fashion runway showcase and the National Indigenous Fashion Awards, celebrating First Nations fashion and textile design.
Come and engage with the contemporary creations of the oldest continuous living culture in the world.
