VegfestUK are thrilled to announce the first Pro-Intersectional Vegan Conference, to be held in the UK, in October, with a number of leading global pro-intersectional speakers already confirmed.
The conference will be aiming to look at a number of issues and topics, including an introduction to the concept of pro-intersectionality, how the concept originated, as well as questions such as
- How “easy” is it actually to be vegan?
- Does veganism have the image of belonging to privileged groups only?
- How do multiple forms of oppression entangle and manifest for marginalised social groups?
- What are the barriers facing some communities to go vegan?
These are topics of intense interest in the year when VegfestUK, organisers of some of Europe’s top vegan festivals right now, are staging an inaugural Pro-Intersectional Vegan Conference, with a number of speakers from various social groups discussing these subjects with a wide audience.
