What to Expect at Artbox Singapore
Artbox began in Bangkok as a pop-up platform for young creatives and entrepreneurs to showcase their crafts. From inventive handicrafts to designer foods, it transformed the night market scene in Bangkok. Now for the first time, it is stepping outside Thailand.
Artbox Singapore is Artbox’s first stop on the Artbox Asia Tour. It will be the first and largest creative market in Singapore, being an epic mash-up of a Thai flea market and a local creative pasar malam. It’ll be two weekends of good vibes, entertainment, food and shopping featuring creative entrepreneurs in the heart of Singapore.
