District Design Dialogue Holland Village (DDDHV) is an annual experiential platform that makes its debut at Singapore Design Week 2018. Come see the Holland Village and Chip Bee Gardens neighbourhood transformed with a gathering of residents, merchants, and invited vendors from across the design industry. 

Stroll through the black-and-white terraces of Chip Bee Gardens and discover pop-up concepts coexisting with residents of the neighbourhood: a cosy performance in a living room, art installations for visitors to interact in an unexpected setting, craft sessions for visitors to be creative. Together with a series of programmes comprising installations, workshops and exhibitions, the assembly of creatives at DDDHV provides a space for exchange between international and local communities, while inspiring collaboration and innovation across various fields.

DDDHV runs from 10th – 18th March, 10am – 8pm.
