Black Arts Market is a great opportunity to start or to put a large dint in the Christmas shopping list – and it’s guaranteed that the gifts you buy will be unique.

Established in 2013, the Regional Arts NSW sponsored event, supported through the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund (RAF), will feature the work of up to 40 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from regional New South Wales and Sydney. This year it moves to the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) Foundation Hall and will be held on Sunday, November 23 from 10am-5pm.

It will include artworks, homewares and design, bush foods, body products, and medicines, along with music and literature.

Featured artists include:
* Flannel Billy
* Hands on Weavers
* Indigiearth
* Modernmurri Contemporary Aboriginal Design 

The market is a key event of Corroboree Sydney to be held from 20 – 30 November. Corroboree Sydney is a festival for all Australians celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture in the heart of Sydney at significant sites around the world-famous Sydney Harbour.

Also established last year, Corroboree is delivered in collaboration with nine of Sydney’s leading arts organisations:  Art Gallery of NSW, Australian Museum, Bangarra Dance Theatre; Blackfella Films, Koori Radio 93.7FM, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney; State Library of NSW and the Sydney Opera House in a strategic partnership with the NSW Government and Destination NSW.
