Festival Info

Indigenous artists from around Australia are set to come together on 3-4 July 2021, for the third National Indigenous Art Fair– a two-day art market and program of events  in celebration of NAIDOC Week, taking place in The Rocks, Sydney, at the Overseas  Passenger Terminal. 

The National Indigenous Art Fair (NIAF) is an ethical marketplace, offering a unique opportunity to  buy artworks directly from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from remote community-owned  art centres from the Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia.

In the spirit of the 2021 National NAIDOC theme Heal Country, Heal our Nation, the event will also  feature a vibrant program of live music and Aboriginal dance performances, an Indigenous sculpture  walk, weaving circles and more than 25 Blak Markets stallholders from around New South Wales  selling art, jewellery, gifts, homewares, and Indigenous bush food and plants.  

NIAF 2021 follows the successful 2019 fair, which hosted 30 remote art centres from the Northern  Territory, South Australia and West Australia, 25 Aboriginal stallholders from around New South  Wales, and attracted 10,000 visitors over two days.  

This third annual event is presented by National Indigenous Art Fair founders, Sydney based First  Hand Solutions Aboriginal Corporation, in proud partnership with: the Port Authority of NSW, the  Australia Council, University of Technology, Sydney, the City of Sydney, and support from the federal  government’s Indigenous Visual Arts Industry Support program. 

The National Indigenous Art Fair will be held at the Overseas Passenger Terminal, The Rocks 10am  to 5pm Saturday July 3, and 10am to 4pm Sunday July 4, 2021. Entry is by gold coin donation to  support First Hand Solutions’ Aboriginal youth programs.
