Celebrate contemporary Indigenous Australian art, design, food & culture at the National Indigenous Art Fair Overseas Passenger Terminal, The Rocks, Sydney This iconic annual event held on Sydney Harbour’s stunning foreshore showcases the latest award-winning ideas and innovations from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, designers, and makers from around the country. From artworks to design objects, fashion, jewellery, homewares, native dyed textiles, and kids puzzles, these inventive artisans are exemplars of sustainability, working closely with the resources found in their own environment. The National Indigenous Art Fair also represents an incredible gathering of indigenous creatives, with many travelling from the far corners of Australia – places like Ceduna, Haasts Bluff, Ramingining, the Tiwi Islands, Weipa and Yuendumu – presenting a rare and exciting opportunity for Sydneysiders to interact directly with the makers. Blak Markets stallholders will join art centres and a new Indigenous bushfoods adjunct, located just a few steps away, provides an extraordinary opportunity to explore the secrets and wisdoms behind native Australian plants and bushfoods, not to mention sampling flavours fresh from the BBQ, prepared by a guest chef or two. With a full schedule of live experiences including talks, demonstrations, tastings, workshops, and performances from 10am daily, it’s a great day out for all the family. Everyone’s welcome to look, listen, learn, and join in!
