Pioneered in the spirit of curation and experience, 1KM is an exclusive discovery of creatives who live and work within one kilometre radius in the same neighbourhood. Like-minded entrepreneurs in art, design, architecture, retail and F&B are putting together ‘satellite events’ for curious eyes and potential collaborations with some of Asia’s most imaginative minds.

1KM celebrates passion that have helped transform the city into brewing grounds for innovation, and personalities who have continually challenged conventions to spearhead art and design on the creative landscape. Offering a host of exhibitions, installations and workshops on their respective turfs, the public is invited for a peek into their world of passion and specialties.

The inaugural edition of 1KM featured 21 satellites from across disciplines. 1KM encourages visitors to walk from satellite to satellite to experience the transiting state of this neighbourhood of charming shophouses where traditional businesses and emerging creative entrepreneurs co-exist.
