DOWNLOAD the CIAF 2020 Digital Program




Shining a spotlight on Queensland’s Indigenous art and culture, CIAF is sending an open invitation to the world to join in and enjoy this year’s 10-day program of exhibitions, events, activities, workshops, conversations and more.

Over the past six months the team at CIAF have taken the program from physical to digital – overcoming the obstacles of distance, pandemic restrictions and technology - to produce and present some 40 individual events and activities that on their own and in combination -- provide a special insight into Queensland’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait peoples, their two distinct cultures, arts, communities and Country.
