Blak Markets provides an excellent opportunity to buy arts, crafts and products directly from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, so all profit goes directly back to those people, families and communities.

NCIE is proud to host Blak Markets at home in Redfern which will showcase Aboriginal arts, craft, performances and food.

The show will feature artworks from Barbara McGrady, the Blak Douglas, Dennis Golding, Chico Monks, Jenny Shillingsworth, Darren Dunn, Eve E White, Matt Cooley and Leeanne Hunter who will be present at the exhibition opening at 12.30pm.
