Cairns Indigenous Art Fair, 51 esplanade Cairns, QLD, Australia 4870



CIAF is committed to strengthening and celebrating culture, creating professional development opportunities for artists, and cultural exchange between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and visitors.



CIAF is focused on offering an ethical art market.



The Cairns Indigenous Art Fair (CIAF) offers an opportunity to experience the beauty and diversity of Indigenous cultures. Held over three days annually in July, CIAF is an unparalleled celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art, dance and music.



Over the past six years CIAF has emerged as the nation’s premier art fair. It has given more than 80,000 visitors the chance to immerse themselves in the state’s rich diversity of Indigenous art in an ethically sound environment, with both commercial art galleries and Indigenous art centres selling artwork by Queensland born or based Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists.
