Food for Thought is a two-day vegan festival, a new initiative from the Festival of Ideas to explore this year’s theme of Equalities.

We will be inviting local businesses to serve up their favourite vegan dishes, showcase their ethical goods and host cooking demonstrations alongside a programme of stimulating events which take a look at themes of ‘Modern Feminism’ and ‘Individual Equalities’.

‘Food for Thought’ is a response to a huge shift in consumer demands, as more and more people consider animal rights when making dietary choices. Veganuary 2018 was a record breaking event, with over 150,000 people worldwide taking part, and articles and trending stories have become ubiquitous on our daily social media.

This year will also see the University’s own Dr Richard Twine and Professor Claire Parkinson, from the Centre for Human-Animal Studies (CfHAS), conduct research into effective vegan advocacy. The project is the first of its kind, and will explore the barriers to veganism.

This is a FREE, not-for-profit event. Everyone is welcome!

A full programme of events and confirmed vendors is available at: ehu.ac.uk/foi
