It is important to us that both artists and visitors alike feel comfortable in attending The Other Art Fair Sydney. Therefore, in accordance with current public health guidelines, we have introduced a series of important operational changes as part of our new Safer Fair Plan. We will continue to be guided by public health advice and provide updates to this information as required.

Before you book your tickets, we ask that you read this information, which we hope will give you peace of mind ahead of your visit.

Should you have any questions please contact the Fair team directly via email at

This information is accurate as of 11 November 2021.

Creating a Safer Fair

  • We will be asking all ticket holders to select their preferred time of arrival when they purchase their ticket. This will allow us to manage the number of people inside the event and provide a relaxed and comfortable environment for all visitors.
  • There will be floor markings, signage and event staff to help visitors maintain safe distances while enjoying the Fair.
  • We have increased the aisle width between artists booths to allow visitors to safely meet with artists and discover art
  • Hand sanitiser will be freely available, and we encourage all attendees, staff and artists to use it
  • There will be enhanced and regular deep cleaning processes before, during and after each day at the Fair 
  • Only contactless payments such as credit cards will be accepted. There will be no cash transactions at the event.
  • If you are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, we will respectfully ask you to leave.
