Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair Foundation exists to provide vibrant and exciting platforms for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and culture with a reputation for innovation, diversity and cultural integrity. The foundation’s mission is to plan, promote and run an annual Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair and related activities that:

 

  • Encourages the production of Aboriginal arts (including visual arts, dance, music, storytelling and culture); 
  • Encourages and assists with the promotion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art in an ethical environment; 
  • Encourages and assists with professional development opportunities and promotion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and arts workers in a broad range of artistic activities;
  • Attracts financial support and economic benefits to support the promotion of Art Centres and their communities; and
  • Contributes to the cultural aspirations of the Art Centres.

 

The Foundation was established in March 2012, meaning that the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair is owned and operated by the Art Centres it represents. The foundation is proud to support over 70 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Centres and Indigenous peak bodies from across Australia.
