Sunday Territorian - - NEWS -

THREE favourite Ter­ri­tory events are be­ing joined by a new­comer this year as Au­gust turns into a cel­e­bra­tion of Indige­nous art, fash­ion, de­sign and mu­sic.

Through­out this month, the NT will host the in­au­gu­ral Na­tional Indige­nous Fash­ion Awards, the Dar­win Abo­rig­i­nal Art Fair, the Tel­stra Na­tional Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Straight Is­lan­der Art Awards cer­e­mony, Salon des Re­fuses (an art ex­hi­bi­tion show­cas­ing works sub­mit­ted but not ac­cepted into the NATSIAAs) and the Na­tional Indige­nous Mu­sic Awards.

NT Ma­jor Events CEO Tim Wats­ford said all the events would also be ac­ces­si­ble on­line. “The Ter­ri­tory is at the heart of Aus­tralia’s Abo­rig­i­nal cul­ture. We have an in­cred­i­ble pool of tal­ented Abo­rig­i­nal artists, de­sign­ers and mu­si­cians right here, and the work of many of them will fea­ture in these bench­mark events,” he said.

Bab­barra De­signs has been nom­i­nated in the in­au­gu­ral NIFA awards in the cat­e­gory of “Com­mu­nity Col­lab­o­ra­tion”.
