Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair

Friday, 9 August 2024 - 9:00am to Sunday, 11 August 2024 - 5:00pm
Garramilla (Darwin)
Larrakia Country
Northern Territory

The Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair, affectionately known as DAAF, is the only national event of its kind and has secured a reputation as one of the country’s most significant internationally recognised arts events.

Showcasing the contemporary fine art and design of more than 70 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Centres from across Australia, DAAF is held annually each August in Darwin, on Larrakia Country – and is now also online.

DAAF takes no commission so 100% of sales goes back to the arts centres and communities.

The Fair showcases the work of emerging and established artists, featuring stunning art inspired by Australia’s most varied locations – from remote desert and coastal regions, to rural and urban communities. A wide range of styles, mediums and products are presented and available for purchase: paintings on canvas, bark paintings, works on paper including limited edition prints, sculpture, didgeridoos, fibre art and cultural regalia.

DAAF also provides a creative space for visitors to meet artists in person, to learn about Australia’s rich diverse cultural groups and to be immersed in our country’s evolving contemporary Indigenous art scene.

DAAF has a vibrant program of artist workshops, spectacular traditional dance performances, children’s activity stations, film, fashion and more.
