Deveron Press is happy to announce a project funded by Scottish Fair Trade Foundation to engage the people of Turriff from 8-80(+) in exploring the meaning and practicality of Fair Trade.
We will look at the what, how, where and why of Fair Trade and develop creative responses illustrating how it relates to our own lives..
The Launch event will be held at the Municipal Buildings on Saturday March 4th (during Fairtrade Fortnight) between 2-3.30pm. There will be an opportunity to sample fair trade ‘fly cup and fancy piece’ as well as find out more about the project to come.
Over the summer there will be a series of ‘fly cup’ workshops which will feature guided creative writing workshops encouraging people to discuss and write their own fairtrade ‘stories’. These will then be edited into a book which will be published during Scottish Book Week in November and will mark the end of the project.
Dates for summer workshops are:
May 31st (Weds 1.30-3.30pm)
June 24th (Sat 11-1pm)
July 19th (Weds 1.30-3.30pm)
August 19th (Sat 1.30-3.30pm)
The creative responses will be turned into a publication which will be launched during Book Week Scotland in November.
All are welcome and you are invited to attend one or all of the workshops. To find out more why not attend the FairTrade ‘fly cup and fancy piece’ event on March 4th. You have nothing to lose but your waistline!
