CIAF 2012

CIAF 2012

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

Over the past three years CIAF has emerged as the nation’s premier art fair. It has given more than 33,500 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.

Plans for CIAF 2012 are underway. The CIAF team looks forward to welcoming you, 17-19 August 2012, to the fourth year of displaying to the world the spectacular vibrancy of Queensland Indigenous art.

The CIAF team is seeking submissions from dance groups and musicians to perform in the opening ceremony and throughout the three-day event. If you would like to be a part of this special event contact, CIAF General Manager Alison Copley at alison.copley@arts.qld.gov.au
