The 2017 Cairns Indigenous Art Fair (CIAF) 2017 is underway.

14 July 2017

With exhibitions, demonstrations, performances, films, a fashion parade and an art market all included in the dynamic three day program, this year’s fair is likely to be an art experience that you won’t want to miss.

CIAF provides opportunities for cultural exchange and engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from far north Queensland and the Torres Strait. The fair will take place between 14 -16 July, with the Cairns Cruise Liner Terminal as its hub.

Through the Indigenous Visual Arts Industry Support program, the Australian Government has supported CIAF since its inception in 2009.

The program of events is available on the CIAF website or through the free official event app.
