Vegan Lass to speak on "How not to promote Veganism" at Vegfest Scotland

Vegan Lass to speak on "How not to promote Veganism" at Vegfest Scotland

| by Editor

Vegan writer, recipe developer and activist Emily Wilkinson – AKA Vegan Lass – will speak on the important topic of how NOT to promote veganism at the first-ever Vegfest Scotland this December at the SECC in Glasgow.



Becoming and being vegan are thoughtful acts; by doing them we commit to living thoughtfully. But do we do enough to be thoughtful in our advocacy? How can we ensure that our intention to live thoughtfully is really borne out in what we promote? Vegan Lass explores how certain types of advocacy are not in fact consistent with thoughtfulness and can actually harm our cause. By highlighting the problems with common advocacy methods - from naked advertising to violent campaigning - Vegan Lass suggests a considered, an inclusive, and, most importantly, an effective approach to vegan advocacy.


Emily Wilkinson (MA, MSc) a.k.a Vegan Lass is a Glasgow-based writer and recipe developer. Part-activist, part-chef, she is known both for her hearty vegan recipes and for her outspoken and intersectionally-minded abolitionist advocacy. Now a PhD candidate, Emily is furthering research into the sociology of veganism and its cultural manifestations. Her work has been featured by numerous organisations and publications, including The Vegan Society, Vegan Life Magazine, T.O.F.U. Magazine, Peaceful Dumpling, and The Abolitionist Vegan Society.

Emily will be giving her talk on Saturday December 5th 2015 at a specified time TBC as part of a huge 2-day Vegfest Scotland event on the weekend December 5th 6th 2015 in Hall 3 of the SECC, with around 10,000 visitors expected to enjoy plenty of vegan goodies and education alongside socialising and entertainment at the event.
