About DAAF

In the interest of prioritising community health and safety The Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair made the decision to move the Fair online again for 2021. Read more here.

DAAF provides a unique opportunity for arts industry buyers, and art and design lovers, to purchase art directly from Indigenous owned and incorporated Art Centres.

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.

The Fair was originally conceived to complement the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards (NATSIAA). It also celebrates the National Indigenous Music Awards and Garma Festival and proudly sits under the umbrella of the Darwin Festival. These prestigious events are held in the same period and together, mark the most significant national festival of national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts in the world.

DAAF boasts a vibrant public program of artist workshops, spectacular traditional dance performances, children’s activity stations, film, fashion and more… guaranteeing a memorable experience for all who attend.

Come and engage with the contemporary creations of the oldest continuous living culture in the world!
