  •  building a creative community

    The joy of holding something physical, filled with considered, intimate, meaningful stories that bring us inside artists’ homes and creative spaces to share stories of slowing down, creating with intention, community, and collaboration, examining the twists and turns of creative lives and how to finally find your voice.

    In today’s world of social media, creative work can happily reach a global audience, but many artists find it creatively debilitating. Work is reduced to “content,” and everything becomes ephemeral and forgettable. We never truly see past the perfect frame or scratch the surface of what makes our favourite creatives tick.

    At FAIRE, we want to create something joyfully physical, something to be treasured, a magazine you take your time to read and return to in moments of reflection.

    Considered, intimate, and honest stories that bring us into artists’ homes and creative spaces; stories of slowing down, creating with intention, community and collaboration, and examining the twists and turns of creative lives and how to finally find your voice.

    Creativity can take on so many forms. Powerful, physical work made by hand; vessels that carry an artist’s thoughts and dreams. It can also be seen in how we create a home, tend our gardens, or set the table for friends coming over for dinner. Creativity is at work when we are positive catalysts for change within our community, when we find ways to share our knowledge and create learning opportunities to help others soar.

    FAIRE has not been created in a big, glossy office block in a cosmopolitan city centre. Rather, our small, all-female team has mastered the art of working remotely, from our kitchen tables and bedrooms, straddling four different time zones as if we’ve been doing this all our lives.

    During these months defined by limitations and isolation, our team has witnessed the incredible power of creativity, both in our magazine’s own story and in the stories of the creatives shared within these pages. It is our hope that our considered, intimate storytelling—free from the manipulation of algorithms or the temptation to appease major advertisers—will connect, educate, inspire, and uplift our readers around the world.

    To our artists: Change is never comfortable, but I deeply admire each of you as you’ve stretched and found new ways to work, create, and collaborate during an unusually difficult season. Thank you for trusting us with your stories.

    To our readers and Kickstarter supporters: Thank you for giving us this incredible opportunity to share these stories and shine a spotlight on the wonderful artists, makers, and craftspeople who fill our lives and world with beauty.

Who doesn't love a cheeky little freebie now and again?
