Folior Fest is a portfolio exhibition and art market to showcase the ideas & crafts of design graduates from Dasein Academy of Art.
The exhibition is an open event that welcomes not only talent scouts from the creative industry, but also public visitors who appreciate creative designs & art market shopping.
Originated as a mini art festival in mind, Folior Fest features the portfolio projects from the following creative groups:
