After 11.30am there will also be the serving food from Eritrea, Palestine and Sudan, holding a Clothes Swapping party and having face painting activities for children.

Ms. Silvia D’Arrigo, one of the organizers said that “The slogan Mill-Art għal fuq l-Ixkaffa (From the Earth to the Shelf) has been chosen to shed light on the human element in the production of goods, which often involves many people from developing countries wherein labour rights and safety standards at the work place are not respected".

The theme chosen for this year’s WorldFest is Fair Trade People and activities shall be focused on the people who produce Fair Trade products and how could we, as responsible consumers, make choices to support the producers of Fair Trade. By doing so we would ensure that goods which we purchase from southern countries have been produced in dignity.

Participation in all activities is free.
