Blak Markets is pleased to have found a regular home at The Rocks with kick-off on the weekend of August 13 and 14, 2022.
CEO of First Hand Solutions Aboriginal Corporation, Peter Cooley, said it’s good to be back at The Rocks showcasing Indigenous culture and businesses in the best location in the City.
“The markets are a great way to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, the oldest continuing culture in the world.”
The Blak Markets offer Sydney’s visitors and residents a great opportunity to purchase authentic and unique gifts, knowing that 100 per cent of the profits go back into Aboriginal communities.
Support from The Rocks means more people will get the chance to:
- Meet the stall holders who are creating authentic, original and affordable Aboriginal artworks, beauty products, jewellery and unique homewares.
- Experience Indigenous culture through dance, singing and weaving workshops for everyone to join in.
Anita Mitchell Chief Executive of Placemaking NSW said, “Hosting Blak Markets is aligned to our responsibility for protecting and enhancing the cultural heritage of The Rocks.
“We are proud to be caretakers of the Tallawoladah precinct’s Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan and welcome our role in hosting Blak Markets where stall holders can showcase their unique products.”
The Market will kick off with a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony on Saturday August 13 and runs 10am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday on the Tallawoladah Lawn at The Rocks
