Fair Trade Pasadena: A Better Pasadena, A Better World

A new group has moved into town, this time to make Pasadena an Offical Fair Trade Town U.S.A.!  The goal of the Fair Trade Towns USA initiative is to get schools, faith based groups, city governments, local businesses and media engaged in fair trade.

Fair trade is not about charity. It is a holistic approach to trade and development that aims to alter the ways in which commerce is conducted, so that trade can empower the poorest of the poor.

Gallery at the End of the World

2475 N. Lake Ave.



The Underground Arts Society opened its doors 6 yrears ago in hopes of bringing a venue that promotes novice and seasoned artists to the community. We are a non-profit organization for the artists and by the artists. The Gallery at the End of the World realizes the difficulties artists today face in trying to secure a gallery exhibit. We open our doors to a plethora of talent and created a melting pot for all those who have the desire to further their en devours in the arts. We don’t curate shows, and feel that this allows our exhibits to flow from a more natural base, the artists themselves. The gallery itself is an evolving installation conforming to meet our needs for showing art.
