Partner with CIAF

CIAF is Australia’s most attended Indigenous Arts event attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors to the Tropical North Queensland region since its inception.

Through our Strategic Plan CIAF have set out five measurable goals which will increase platforms for cultural exchange and economic opportunity for Queensland Indigenous artists. These goals are to:

  • Leverage existing markets and develop new markets for Queensland Indigenous art.
  • Grow audiences through immersive Indigenous arts and cultural experiences.
  • Build CIAF’s national and international profile.
  • Contribute to development pathways for Queensland Indigenous artists.
  • Ensure the relevancy and viability of CIAF.

This path forward can only be achieved by identifying and maintaining meaningful partnerships with organisations and friends — many of whom have been involved with CIAF since its inception in 2009.

If you or your organisation are interested in supporting our vision and work, please contact the CIAF team to receive our Sponsorship Kit and/or information about how to donate.
