Australia’s largest Indigenous art event is going digital for the first time this year, providing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and arts lovers a unique online platform through which to connect.

Like so many events around the world, the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair (DAAF), has had to adapt to ongoing Covid-19 concerns, border closures and social distancing measures.

Now in its 14th year, DAAF is set to run from 6-14th of August with more than 50 participating Indigenous owned art centres around Australia offering artworks for sale exclusively through the Digital Art Fair.

DAAF Foundations Executive Director Claire Summers told ABC’s the Drawing Room about the need to adapt and continue supporting Indigenous art centres and communities through this time.
