Save the Date, and Celebrate

INTERNATIONALLY CELEBRATED AS a world-class event, the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair (DAAF) has announced its intentions to move online in 2020, with a ground-breaking new ‘virtual fair’ format to be delivered for the first time this year.

Connecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists with art lovers and collectors around the globe, the Fair gives buyers the opportunity to ethically purchase authentic artworks via DAAF’s online portal, safe in the knowledge that one-hundred percent of all sales are returned directly to Art Centres and their communities.

DAAF’s vibrant public program of cultural performances, artist workshops and demonstrations, Indigenous food experiences, panel discussions and a children's collaborative art project will be accessible via the DAAF website and social channels between 7-14 August.

In tandem with DAAF, the inaugural National Indigenous Fashion Awards (NIFAs) celebrate the innovation, diversity and ethical practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander fashion designers, while providing a platform to showcase their breathtaking creations to a broad audience.

The highly anticipated NIFAs will culminate in an awards ceremony to be broadcast on NITV and DAAF digital platforms on Wed 5 Aug. Mark it in your diaries!
