Image and Sound of Fragrance

The scents we pick up evoke our emotions and memories. It may conjure up a smile, stir a fear, alleviate a pain, create a sense of peace. ARTWALK transforms scents to visuals, blends noise to music, to present old to new. With the talents of local artists, we expect to create a sensory experience for both tourists and locals.

ArtWalk Little India

About the Festival

LASALLE College of the Arts and Singapore Tourism Board (STB), with the support of the Little India Shopkeepers’ and Heritage Association (LISHA), present ARTWALK Little India, a multi-disciplinary public art project set in the cultural precinct of Little India.

The inaugural edition of ARTWALK was in 2015 and the event has been held as part of Singapore Art Week every January since. As of 2017, the event features 9 artworks and close to 270,000 visitors over a 10 day festival in 2018.

Through artworks such as wall murals, film, music and performances, artists bring to life the history and traditions of Little India, as well as the personal stories of its community through a multi-sensory art experience.

The Precinct

Little India

In the 1840s, Little India served as a residential area for Europeans who were drawn to the elite sport of horse racing. With the development of cattle trading, traders began to hire Indian migrant workers, turning Little India into a thriving trade and community hub. Places of worship, such as Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple and Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple, as well as business and services were set up to cater to the needs of the Indian community.

Today, Little India is one of Singapore’s most vibrant precincts, with events, festivals and celebrations held throughout the year.
