2021 Cairns Indigenous Art Fair | Online

This year, due to ongoing COVID-19 travel restrictions, Cairns Indigenous Art Fair (CIAF) is taking the annual celebrations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts and culture into the digital realm. From 10 to 19 November, audiences across the nation and beyond will have the opportunity to go online and explore the vibrant program of pre-recorded and live-streamed arts and cultural presentations, artist talks, a symposium, community spotlights, music, and dance performances. Beautiful couture will be on show in ‘Of Spirit & Story’. The CIAF Shop has a wide range of artworks on sale, which highlight the skills and extraordinary talent of the artists and makers featured in CIAF 2021. CIAF Art Awards will be announced on 19 November.
