Talk “Why vegan feminism” — come and join!

Let's have a discussion about vegan feminism!

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.”

Believing in being the change you want to see in the world: Corline aka Coco De Los Muertos (Cry Baby Tattoo Belgium; BE)

“Art is the mirror of the society that can make you think differently, showing what is not usually showed.”

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.”

Making people smile: Maarika (Teacup Goblins; EE)

“I want my art to make people smile. It's not a huge goal but it might just make a small difference in someone's day. To me that's good enough.”
