10 Fun Things to See and Do at the Amazing Artbox Singapore 2018
Artbox Singapore, the local edition of the pop-up creative market made famous in Thailand, will be making its comeback this May, bigger and better! This year from 25 to 27 May, and 1 to 3 June, Artbox is taking over the entire Bayfront Event Space of over 140,000 soft at Marina Bay. Artbox is set to be Singapore’s largest creative market comprising over 400 regional and local
creative makers and partners.
The theme for Artbox Singapore 2018 this year is none other than… OASIS! Artbox 2018 aims to be an oasis for us all — a melting pot for the creative community, and for Singaporeans to immerse themselves in a creative environment. It is a market with offerings for all ages. Anticipate many interactive elements and activities, creative art installations, and a wide variety of delectable food.
This year, expect a bigger and better Artbox Singapore. There were 300 vendors and partners last year. This year, there will be a whopping 400 regional and local creative makers and partners from all over Asia! As Oasis is anticipating a larger turnout this year as compared to last year, they have catered for more than 20 shipping containers (as compared to around 10 last year), 3 times more space (an increase in space from 50, 000 square feet in 2017 to 140,000 square feet this year), and of course, more booths!
