Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair

After raising more than $8.5 million for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities over the
past nine years, the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair (DAAF) will celebrate its 10th birthday this year by doubling in size to encompass fashion, film and a panel discussion from Friday 5 August to Sunday 7 August.

DAAF will marry Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander contemporary fine art with textile design and take it to the catwalk, launching the Fair’s first fashion runway show, which will involve up to 15 Art Centres and designers and be headlined by Magnolia Maymuru, the first Aboriginal woman to represent the NT in Miss World Australia.
