Patch and Punnet’s Space to Share

“Calling out to art folk that are looking for space!

Patch and Punnet (@patchandpunnet) is lucky enough to have secured the ground floor and second floor of a shophouse at 11 Chander Road from mid-January 2020 to February 2020 for its next show, but won’t be using the space for the entire time period.

Since we understand how difficult it can be to secure space in Singapore whilst working with a tight budget, we’re keen on sharing 11 Chander Road with any local artists capable of putting it to good use!

All we need is for you to chip in for the utilities during the period of time that you’ll be using it! Bonus points if: your intended use of the space is fun and exciting, or if you’re able to attract a great deal of footfall during that period.

The space looks quite rabak now ah, but it’ll be spruced up come January 2020. So bear this in mind if you’re keen on (or averse to) the rawness of the space.

Feel free to message us on FB or Insta, or drop us an email at if you’re interested.

Lotsa love,
Patch and Punnet”
