Over 70 Art Centres across Australia are participating in DAAF 2022!

The Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair Foundation would like to acknowledge the incredible staff and artists of participating Art Centres. Without their dedication, vision, hard work and willingness to share their art and culture, DAAF could not happen. You can support these Art Centres throughout the year by clicking on the links below.
