The team at DAAFF would like to invite you to become part of our newest supporter group, the daaf1000!

daaf1000 members will contribute directly to the Foundation’s initiatives and develop new, innovative professional development opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Arts Centres, Arts Workers and artists.

This donor program allows you to support our organisation, and grow our incredible events such as the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair, From Country to Couture and the Indigenous Curators Program and Symposium.

This new donor group is being introduced as the Foundation moves into a time of growth development. Over the past 12 years DAAFF has developed the Fair into a world renowned event with 75 Arts Centres represented from across Australia. Over the past five-years, the Fair has generated $10.5 million for our Art Centres, and in the last two years, contributed $25 million to the local Darwin economy.

The Foundation is now extending its outreach right throughout the year, and we need your support to achieve this!

We ask that all daaf1000 members donate $1,000 in this annual giving program

(tax deductible and payable annually, quarterly or monthly). This is a monthly donation of under $84!

In recognition of your support, daaf1000 members will receive:

  • Email and online updates, including exclusive news on opportunities to get involved
  • Written daaf1000 acknowledgement in DAAF Program
  • 2 x invitations to our Supporter Cocktail function
  • 2 x invitations to the VIP DAAF Opening Ceremony and Industry Preview

Access to pre-sale tickets (get the best seats in the house during the priority booking period) to From County to Couture

DAAFF would like to acknowledge our supporters, both friends and businesses, who believe in our foundation, and who have watched our fair grow over the last decade. Some of you have championed the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair since its humble beginnings back in 2007!
