ciaf-logoNow in its sixth year, CIAF 2015 returns to the Cairns Cruise Liner Terminal, to showcase the incredible talents of Queensland’s First Nations visual artists. The Art Fair will shine a spotlight on emerging and established visual artists, and we introduce CIAF’s first Art Market that will surely make you wish you left your wallet at home.

Much more than art fair, CIAF 2015 is a platform for artists to tell their stories through performance: music, song and dance; theatre, screen and fashion; workshops and informative talks. We are building on our partnerships with major cultural venues based in Cairns and the region, in presenting satellite events throughout the week.

Immerse yourself in CIAF’s artistic and social exchange and support the economic opportunity for Queensland First Nations art and cultures.
