About

The iconic Blak Markets will return to Sydney’s spectacular harbour headland park, Barangaroo Reserve to host a special Aboriginal art market on Sunday, 2 July.

Taking place at the beginning of NAIDOC Week, the family-friendly event will be a vibrant celebration of Australia’s rich Aboriginal culture.

Aboriginal artists from 11 remote Australian arts centres will bring their artworks, sculptures, textiles and accessories to Sydney to exhibit and sell at the market, and host Tjanpi weaving workshops, demonstrations of Rarrk painting and pandanus weaving.

The event is a rare opportunity for Sydneysiders to buy high quality Aboriginal art directly from a diverse range of artists from remote art centres in the NT, WA and SA. There will be artwork and products on sale to suit a range of budgets.

The lively open-air market will also feature more than 30 stalls, bush tucker cooking demonstrations by Indigiearth and Jody Orcher; live music by Jessie Lloyd and Emma Donovan, Jarjum, and Freshwater; Aboriginal dance performances by Thikkabilla (Dubbo), Yadhamayi (Central Coast), and Wagana (Greater Sydney); language and culture workshops; Aboriginal Cultural Tours of Barangaroo Reserve; and a Tribal Warrior Tour to Goat Island.
