As the first festival of its kind in Singapore, we aim to enable individuals to be more aware when making decisions, the impact this has on the community around them and encourage them to want to do things better and support social movements they believe in.

THE FESTIVAL’S SIX COMPONENTS:

2. the MARKETPLACE – An exhibition of local fashion, beauty and lifestyle brands who are conscious and mindful in their business outlook. These brands are pushing the boundaries of their field by championing better choices by way of more ethical and sustainable methods.

3. the GRUB – Creatory, conceptualised by The Ate Group, will curate a diverse and exciting group of food vendors that will exemplify healthy options that do not sacrifice on taste.

4. the WORKSHOP – Engaging experiences with lifestyle gurus to encourage critical thinking of lifestyle decisions, including an organic beauty workshop by Frank Skincare, a happiness workshop by This Happy, a guide on living toxin-free by GTL World, Mastering the formula of good habits by Emerge Performance, Infusing sustainability in everyday life and work by The Change School and a floral arrangement class by Charlotte Puxley Flowers.
