Frequent visitors of Bangkok, Thailand would be familiar with its creative market Artbox. Well, now you don’t have to travel to Bangkok for the market because Artbox is coming to Singapore on 14 April 2017.
Set to be the island’s first and biggest creative market, Artbox Singapore will feature more than 500 regional vendors and partners. Happening at Marina Bayfront, the Singapore installation is Artbox’s first overseas stop in the Artbox Asia Tour.
“Well known for being the biggest hipster creative market in Bangkok, Artbox is a refreshing and exciting concept that brings together young entrepreneurs, giving them a platform to showcase their work. This being Artbox’s inaugural offshore foray, we’re thrilled as title sponsor to bring Artbox to the iconic Marina Bay for the first time. We hope that the activities in store will present to the public new and unique experiences that will enable them to participate in the endless possibilities of the Bay,” Karen Ngui, Managing Director and Head of Group Strategic Marketing and Communications, DBS Bank.
Here are some things you should look out for at Artbox Singapore:
Iconic shipping containers
Over 10 shipping containers have been re-purposed for the event.
5,000 fairy lights
Imagine 5,000 stunning fairy lights spread across 3km. You will feel like you are bathed in stars.
Instagrammable (and of course, delicious) food
There will be more than 300 booths selling food, beauty products and art from vendors and partners around the region. Look out for Loco Loco’s Pandan churros with salted egg yolk dip and Tiosmoke’s Dragon’s Breath dessert that will make you literally breathe out smoke.
