Celebrating ethical, socially responsible and environmentally aware businesses and services, Fair@Square fair-trade+ethical festival is a free event which offers something for everyone who has an interest in being part of a more sustainable future.  Fair@Square provides a culturally rich and diverse offering of workshops, talks, market stalls, live music, fashion and art, appealing to young and old. The festival inspires, entertains and educates attendees, offering information and activities to encourage participants to live more sustainably and effect positive change in their own lifestyles and those of fair trade producers.  Due to the success of the inaugural event in 2009, this year Fair@Square will extend to two days of activities and programs designed to demonstrate how dialogue, creativity, music and trade can be used as vehicles to attain a sustainable and culturally diverse future.
