Be a part of invigorating and inspiring Australia’s Indigenous art legacy, culture and the lives of over 2000 artists, in over sixty communities from across Australia.
Why DAAFF needs your support?
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art is our greatest cultural heritage. It’s a living, breathing tradition, that is still growing and flourishing today. It plays an important role in defining our emerging national identity, and it represents a positive, vibrant and inclusive Australia on the world stage.
Over the past five years, DAAFF has generated over $7.5 million for the Indigenous Art Centres, with 100% of all sales going directly back to community Art Centres.
Supporting the growth of Art Centres enables them to thrive and continue playing a major cultural and economic role in their communities.
Indigenous Art Centres also play an integral role in communities across Australia. They are cultural keeping places, major employers, social enterprises that are governed by Aboriginal people, they provide many different services to communities and are often a gateway to experiencing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, in some of Australia’s most incredible and remote locations.
Help us provide promotional platforms for over 2000 artists and their Art Centres to connect with the world! Share in their incredible stories, culture, traditional practices, and their incredible contemporary art.
The Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair has been bringing Art Centres from across Australia together for over 10 years. Our event is the only fair of its kind and has a national and international reputation as the most prestigious Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art fair in the world.
In order for the DAAF Foundation to continue developing new and innovative ways to promote its Art Centres, and to expand its professional development opportunities for artists and Arts Workers, we need your support.
