The first ever SIDM Art Market was held on 25th October 2017.
This unique experience celebrates NYP’s 25th anniversary whilst creating an opportunity for SIDM students, alumni and staff to come together through an afternoon and evening of networking, mentorship, alumni sharing and fun. The number 25 was craftily woven into the prices and their artwork to celebrate NYP turning 25!
More than 250 signed up for the event, 25 of whom set up stalls to sell their craft and art merchandise, like Evacomics, HandmadebyWai, Make Our Own and many more at the Art Market. Some of them ran mini workshops for those who were interested to get crafty with their hands. It was a great opportunity to kick-start Christmas shopping!
Food and beverages were provided by KombiRocks, which included a churros station, chendol soft cones, free flow popcorn and cotton candy. KombiRocks even provided a photo booth within a Vintage Volkswagen van with props and an unlimited number of digital photo prints to capture the photogenic memories!
Zomwork graced us with two talks about their online platform set to help freelancers and clients come together, keeping the industry strong. Their booth registered about 50 signups including alumni and current students.
Performances by students, alumni and staff made the whole atmosphere relaxed and fun. It was like one big family reunion!
