After two near sell-out online editions, SOUTHEAST Aboriginal Arts Market returns to Carriageworks as an in-person market, held on Gadigal Land from 19-20 Nov. Curated by Hetti Perkins (Arrernte/Kalkadoon) and Jonathan Jones (Wiradjuri/Kamilaroi) SOUTHEAST celebrates the rich cultural inheritance and contemporary artistic expression of Aboriginal artists and practitioners of the southeast region of Australia.

This year, the market brings together 32 independent Aboriginal artists, with hundreds of artworks for sale across ceramics, jewellery, weaving, carving, textiles, painting and prints.

100% of proceeds go directly to the artists.
