For three days in November, Chippendale’s Kensington Street turned into a creative showcase of the dynamic city-state of Singapore. Top artists, designers, chefs, filmmakers and photographers transformed the precinct, offering visitors a preview of Singapore’s dynamic contemporary arts, food and drink, design and music scenes, all without leaving Chippendale. If you didn’t make it, here’s what went down, plus we’ve got some hot tips for how you can catch some of the highlights IRL in Singapore.

Twenty Singaporean and Australian creatives collaborated to create beautiful live artworks and installations. Artists included Joshua Ip, Ezzam Rahman, Donna Ong, Grace Tan and Kirsten Tan. Back in Singapore, you can head to the National Gallery of Singapore, which houses around 8,000 works from Singapore and South East Asian Artists.

The nation's sizzling food and drink scene was represented as well, from fine dining through to hawker stalls. Some of Singapore’s top chefs were were flown in to recreate their signature dishes right here in Sydney. Chef Jeremy Cheok fired up a fresh take on Singapore chilli crab, using crab meat to create a spicy rilette, which was served with a fried mantou bun. You can check out New Ubin Seafood in Bukit Batok. Other chefs on board included Cheryl Koh (Tarte by Cheryl Koh), Malcolm Lee (head chef and owner of the world's first Michelin-starred Peranakan restaurant, Candlenut) and Sam Chablani (Fat Lulu's).

There was also a pop-up direct from Singapore’s colourful shopping strip Orchard Road, which showcased 12 Singaporean designers handpicked by design retailer Naiise; plus an appearance from Singaporean silk scarf label Binary Style. You can browse Naiise online, or if you’re heading over to Singapore, make sure you head down Orchard Road to get a taste of true Singaporean shopping and style.
