Join us on the picturesque Acton Peninsula for the 2019 AIATSIS Indigenous Art Market.

The annual Indigenous Art Market presents work from a range of contemporary Indigenous artists and art centres from around Australia directly to the shores of Lake Burley Griffin.

There will also be a range of cultural workshops, traditional music, entertainment and food across the two days that will be announced soon. 

The AIATSIS exhibition Ngulla Wellamunagaa, will also be launching at the National Museum of Australia on the same dates as the Indigenous Art Market, offering a unique cultural weekend experience.

Did you know? Attending Art Centres keep 100% of their sales from the art market.
