CIAF and Cairns Airport Public Art Commission – DEADLINE

February 14

Each year CIAF attracts many visitors who fly to Cairns to experience the vibrant Indigenous culture in Tropical North Queensland. Cairns Airport recognises the importance of the indigenous culture and heritage in this region and together with Cairns Indigenous Art Fair (CIAF) have developed an annual Public Art Commissioning Project which will span over the next five years.


Local QLD Indigenous artists are invited to answer an Expression of Interest (EOI) to design a sculptural/artistic element, to be commissioned and then permanently displayed within the Cairns Airport T2 Domestic Terminal.  The awarded commissioned piece will firstly be displayed at CIAF prior to its final destination at Cairns Airport.


The theme for 2019/2020 is to represent The Great Barrier Reef in 3D/Sculptural form by a Queensland Indigenous Artist. To find out more, follow the event link below.
