Art lovers, take note: the National Indigenous Art Fair returns to the Sydney Harbour foreshore this July to showcase art and craft from First Nations artists, designers and makers for its third annual art market.
The art fair launches NAIDOC Week and runs from 10am-5pm, 2-3 July at the Overseas Passenger Terminal in the Rocks. A vibrant celebration of Indigenous art and culture, the art fair will feature colourful art stalls, performances, bush tucker cooking demonstrations, children’s activities, a communal weaving circle, and a panel discussion devoted to the 2022 NAIDOC Week theme: Get Up, Stand Up, Show Up.
An ethical marketplace, there will be more than 50 stallholders from remote and regional art centres across Australia and Sydney’s popular Blak Markets selling authentic contemporary and traditional art, fashion, jewellery, homewares, native dyed textiles and children’s puzzles. All proceeds go directly back to the artist and First Nations communities. It’s a great day out for the entire family, and there’s something for every budget.
