The Australian Institute for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) is Australia’s only national institution focused exclusively on the diverse history, cultures and heritage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia.
We tell the story of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia, to transform understanding and enrich the lives of all Australians. Our vision is a world in which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge and cultures are recognised, respected, celebrated and valued.
The AIATSIS Indigenous Art Market has been an annual event since 2014, including as an online event for the first time in 2020 and has connected people from the Canberra region and beyond with Indigenous artists, art centres and remote communities.
The market has grown to become the largest Indigenous art market in the region showcasing a diverse range of paintings, textiles, sculptures and much more with 100% of sales going back to Indigenous art centres, artists and their communities. This year we are excited to welcome over 30 Indigenous art centres and independent artists from around Australia.
