National Indigenous Music Awards

The National Indigenous Music Awards (NIMAs) are recognised as one of Australia’s most prominent Indigenous music awards and have been celebrating Australian music for 16 years.

The NIMAs showcase the rich musical landscape of Australia and highlight the music coming from all corners of the country. The Awards bring together acts who are yet to make their mark on the world alongside those who have achieved international acclaim, such as Gurrumul & Jessica Mauboy

The Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair (DAAF) is unique in that it provides a genuine opportunity to purchase artwork directly from over seventy Indigenous owned community Art Centres, whilst being immersed in an exciting program of traditional dance, workshops, film, fashion and music!

It’s an experience like no other with the rich diversity of these beautiful works that have been inspired by the country’s most remote desert and coastal regions, to rural and urban communities. 3 KND Supporting community
