The Vegan Intersectionality Project (VIP).
Dublin-based Vegan Intersectionality Project (formally Vegan Information Project) is dedicated to public education initiatives based on an intersectional understanding of the entangled nature of modes of oppression and liberation.
VIP have had a busy 2014 (see video immediately below). We have introduced new features to our ground-breaking gazebo stall events, “Vegan Information Days,” not least a second gazebo! Our stalls have featured in 2014 in three different locations in Dublin city centre, Westmoreland Street, Temple Bar Square, and the top of Grafton Street, and also in Rathmines and Dun Laoghaire.
Check out the changes, and all our activities, in the video…
Our busy 2013 World Vegan Month programme (see 3-minute year review video below) included public educational events, pay-to-view events, media appearances, conferences, a “mini-course” on social movement theory and social movement participation, and workshops on animal ethics and effective animal advocacy.
In 2013, VIP completed a successful 16-week residency in Dublin’s Temple Bar Square (every Wednesday with our “Vegan Information Day” stall, from 11 in the mornings until 7 in the evening, distributing vegan-based literature, handing out free vegan food samples, asking people to watch from a variety of movie clips available, or enjoy a cup of tea at the VIP “tea station,” where they can chat about veganism and animal rights – or just get on with reading their newly-acquired leaflets and booklets. Also, in exchange for donation, we have a range of goods, such as vegan food portions, necklaces, bracelets, rings, and badges. And if people want to know the location of vegan-friendly cafes and restaurants, they can get all the information they need from special maps the VIP produce.)
