Promoting veganism in every possible way: Cindy Frey (Cindy Frey Tattoo Studio; BE)

“People are aware of more things than ever before, so they want a tattoo with a message on their body. Both for themselves and also to show their viewpoints to the others.”

Using arts and crafts for improving position of oppressed animals: Marita Tanninen (Vegan Vortex; FI)

“Every person has a key to change the world. I believe spreading the knowledge about animal rights is one thing that can make a big influence, and I think we are heading to more cruelty-free world all the time. If and when we are aware of these things, we can also demand improvements to be written in our laws. For example, many countries have banned fur farming lately. We just have to fight against the system.”

Doing activism with meaningful films: Aćim Vasić (SC/FR)

“The best method of nonviolent struggle is a non-violent protest march (I was part of several protest marches in Serbia during my teenage days). I'm not sure if there is any other method that can have as big impact on the awareness as much as this one.”

Putting love and respect for the animals into drawings: Weronika Kolinska (MENIMA; PL/NL)

“Animals are unique, they have personalities. I try to draw animals as individuals and I want to show other people how I see them – beautiful, majestic beings, deserving of our respect. I have also illustrated my favorite vegan poem about the milk industry to depict some of the standard practices, like taking the calves away soon after birth, killing the calves for veal and killing the cows when they are “spent”. I’m proud to say that those illustrations reached and touched a lot of people.”

Advocating for a better world for animals, one art piece at a time: Jane Lewis (UK)

"Non-human persons can teach us to respect and to live in harmony with the planet’s natural environment, and to take from nature only what we really need. Humanity is in the final stages of polluting and destroying the environment for ego and greed. We would do well to look to other animals as examples of how to live with instead of against nature."
