Now in its 11th year, Finders Keepers is Australia’s longest running independent art and design festival and supports over 1200 sellers each year. This week, the blockbuster event will be back at Barangaroo in Sydney for three days chockablock with some of the very best artists and makers in the country.
Peruse goods from makers hailing from all over Australia with an epic lineup of 199 stallholders, including returning favourites and newcomers alike. Shoppers will REJOICE at the new trading hours on Friday, which will see the event open from 12-9pm so you can shop ‘til you drop!
In addition to this, the industry leaders will be launching two very important programs at the 2018 event. Injalak Arts, a non-profit, Aboriginal-owned social enterprise based in Sydney, is the recipient of this year’s inaugural Finders Keepers Indigenous Program, which offers the admirable organisation a sponsored stall position at the massive market, assistance with stall design and development as well as marketing and media assistance.
The recipient of the Autumn Winter season Finders Keepers Artist Program, Magpie Goose, have worked in collaboration with renowned artist Bede Tungutalum, to produce the colourful, screen-printed Tiwi Bird artwork, which features across the A/W 2018 posters. Similarly, the fashion social enterprise based in the Northern Territory will be taking on a sponsored stall at the market selling goods inspired by the artwork.
