The Canvas: Cafe and Creative Venue, London, United Kingdom
We are living in crisis: Our planet is dehydrated, exhausted and suffocating.
Over 1/3 of all food production globally goes to waste and less than a quarter of that wasted food could feed the world’s hungry – all one billion of them.
It’s time we take a stand, hand in hand, with each other, with all life, with the planet. For without them, we are not at all…
Joined by special guests for an evening of Revolting Waste, we bring important conversations about our relationship to food, the global food crisis and the social, political and environmental context of food and its provenance to the table.
Through an immersive 6 course plant based menu, Revolting Vegans will traverse a conversation of wastefulness through each course; evaluating our human imprint from a global, local and personal perspective.
Investigating notions of impact and antidote through playful explorations, we strive for a more delicious future.

ABOUT REVOLTING VEGANS
Revolting Vegans is an immersive plant-based supper club, aiming to bring important conversations about our relationship to food, the global food crisis and the social, political and environmental context of food and its provenance to the table.
A disruptive plant based movement, we explore notions of ‘revolting’ in playful combinations of ‘taboo’, ‘rebellion’ and ‘revolution’, we strive for a more delicious future.
Launching in 2018 with ‘Desires of Flesh’; a sensorial exploration into the visceral and carnal experience of meat eating, Revolting Vegans was founded during Cathrine Disney’s (Creative Producer) postgraduate degree in MA Material Futures at Central Saint Martins. Her research into the morality of meat eating lead her into an ongoing personal battle between guilt and pleasure as she investigated the question: As a vegan, how can I morally indulge in my insatiable desire for meat?
