Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from around Australia are set to come together in Sydney for the National Indigenous Art Fair – a two day art market and program of events in celebration of NAIDOC Week at the Overseas Passenger Terminal in Circular Quay on 29 & 30 June 2019.
The National Indigenous Art Fair is an ethical marketplace, offering a unique opportunity to buy artwork directly from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from more than 20 remote community owned art centres from the Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia.
The second annual event is presented by the Blak Markets, the social enterprise arm of First Hand Solutions Aboriginal Corporation, in proud partnership with Port Authority of NSW and Destination NSW. Artists will travel to Sydney as part of First Hand Solutions’ ‘Heart in Art’ program, which provides economic and professional development opportunities to Aboriginal artists working in remote communities.
First Hand Solutions, CEO, Peter Cooley said: “The National Indigenous Art Fair is a rare chance to meet artists from some of Australia’s most isolated communities and browse a huge variety of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art, right in the heart of Sydney.
“We are dedicated to helping Indigenous people be the architects of their own futures and are thrilled to offer artists the chance to travel to Sydney to promote and sell their artworks and host workshops demonstrating their unique arts and cultural practices.”
Visitors are invited to browse artworks, sculptures and textiles and speak to artists from art centres, including:

A group of Aboriginal weavers and fibre artists from remote communities will work together to create a woven interpretation of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, which will evolve before the eyes of visitors.
The National Indigenous Art Fair will be held at the Overseas Passenger Terminal, The Rocks on Saturday, 29 and Sunday, 30 June 2019. Entry is by gold coin donation to support First Hand Solutions’ Aboriginal youth programs. The Overseas Passenger Terminal is easily accessible by public transport and on foot from Circular Quay.
