Lockhart River Arts Centre was invited for the first time to participate in the third annual Sydney Indigenous National Art Fair in Sydney scheduled for 3-4 July 2021. Organizer Sarah Martin extended the invitation to Arts Centres in Far North Queensland including Lockhart River Arts Centre. The organizers had secured funding from NSW state government for the annual event to sponsor arts centres to travel with arts workers and artists to the art fair. The sponsorship was for travel and accomodation.
The art fair was cancelled due to the rise in Covid cases in greater Sydney and NSW during the week commencing 21 June 2021. It's an unfortunate but a responsible cancellation decision as we all continue to observe and adhere to ongoing advise from state and territory governments on Covid control measures nationwide.
The art fair has been rescheduled to 2022.
