Add these markets to your list this November
The Southeast Aboriginal Markets will be presented by Carriageworks. Carriageworks acknowledges the Gadigal people on whose country it is located and pays respect to the traditional custodians of the lands where the Southwest artists live and work. This is Aboriginal land, always was, always will be.

Markets will be held online for four days. They will feature 27 independent artists and collectives who will showcase over 200 unique artworks for sale, including ceramics, jewellery, weaving, carving, sculpture, textiles, painting, and prints, and all proceeds from the Southwest Aboriginal Markets will go directly to the artists.

This market event will also offer an inside look into the flourishing artists' renaissance around the region. The artists' works feature new life into ancient heritage, as well as experiment with innovative expressions of new ideas.
