Mark your calendars!
Keepers Playground of Infinite Happiness is back for another edition and it’s bigger and better than ever. Spread over ten days from 27 July to 5 August at the National Design Centre, this year’s magnificent curation based on The Singapore Story, sees over 120 local and locally-based artisans, entrepreneurs, designers, chefs, and craftsmen under one roof showcasing collaborative works, art installations, food creation and local labels.
Food and retail pop-ups will be available over the weekends of 27 to 29 July and 3 to 5 August, with a different theme for each weekend so you have a good excuse to make both weekends. Come on, you know you want to!
Co-curated by Carolyn Kan of Keepers and SKL0, this edition spans all five floors of the National Design Centre and encourages you to thoroughly immerse yourself in Singapore Art that you can walk-through or play on.
