Celebrate the evolving expression of Central Australian Aboriginal Art over eight days with Desart’s series of short films and online MarketPlace.

peaking from Country, artists share the stories of their work, culture and communities. Be taken into the art centres and onto the homelands by these story keepers and experience the diversity of storytelling and contemporary practice through a program of 14 films.

Following the program of films, the online MarketPlace is a chance to purchase works from these art centres across the desert. Representing the many cultural groups of the regions, the MarketPlace will showcase a range of styles and mediums including sculptures, ceramics, paintings, works on paper as well as products and merchandise.

Share the love and be a part of this exchange from the desert with 100% of the profits going directly to supporting artists, their families and communities.

Film series 1 – 4 November
Online Marketplace 5 – 8 November
