Blak Markets are coming to HOSW8
First Hand Solutions Aboriginal Corporation is a charity whose mission is to provide hands on solutions to the issues faced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people. The Blak Markets is its social enterprise arm and is a micro business hub providing economic development opportunities to Indigenous people through its marketplace which operates up to eight times a year around Sydney but also as a Blak Markets pop-up shop and online store. The Market attracts over 25,000 visitors each year. The charity also trains and employs young Aboriginal people in barista, retail, food preparation and supervision who work at the Blak Markets. All profits from the Blak Markets are reinvested in our cultural reconnection programs for Aboriginal youth to reduce rates of incarceration and youth suicide.
Blak Markets will be open for business in the Gathering Place 9:00 am to 5:30 pm Tuesday and Wednesday and 9:00 am – 3:30 pm on Thursday during the Gathering. Its a perfect opportunity for delegates and members of the public to pick up a souvenir or do some Christmas shopping.
