FAIRE is a new independent quarterly magazine that celebrates creativity.
Among its pages we find intimate and meaningful stories that take us into the homes and workshops of artists who share with us stories of slowness, creation, community and collaboration. We examine and get inspired by the twists and turns in the life of creatives who have managed to find their way.
Creativity can take many forms and is at work when we place ourselves as positive catalysts for change within our community, when we find ways to share our knowledge and create learning opportunities to help others grow.
FAIRE is committed to building a community of creatives on and off its pages, while opening up opportunities for collaboration and sharing of expertise.
Dimensions: 21x27 cm
