After just four years, BlakMarkets Art has gone from an exhibition space on Bear Island on Botany Bay, to the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay with the original La Perouse artists and 22 other aboriginal art centres from remote regions right across Australia.

Now honouring Naidoc week, CEO Peter Coorey says this is a full weekend of festivities commencing on Sat 30th June  including regional indigenous food, dancing, music and of course the Art exhibits.

This is a unique event where people can purchase authentic art and hear the stories behind the pictures from the artists themselves. Last year the event garnered over a quarter of a million dollars which goes back to help remote communities to improve their facilities and promote indigenous art.
