Acknowledgement of Larrakia Country

Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair Foundation acknowledges the value, diversity and integrity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art, music and performance as an integral expression of Australian culture and we respect the work of Art Centres in their support of the richness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural aspirations and expressions.

We acknowledge the Larrakia people, both past and present, as the Traditional Owners of the land upon which the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair Foundation will present events. We appreciate the opportunity to share this country and are committed to working together and appropriately consulting with the Larrakia people in presenting the National Indigenous Fashion Awards.
