  • visiting schools and offering guest speaker opportunities
  • advocating a healthy and cruelty-free lifestyle via our community events
  • running our annual Vegan Expo which has become a huge success
  • a community based monthly Vegan Night Mākete showcasing the best local plant-based foods and goods
  • publishing free fortnightly newsletters about local news and events
  • Business Directory scheme supporting businesses who provide vegan goods and services in Ōtautahi Christchurch and throughout Aotearoa

Are you a face painter? Would you like to show off your skills at our Halloween-themed Vegan Night Mākete on October 31? (Unfortunately the duo we had lined up can no longer attend)

We're looking for someone who can do face painting at our special upcoming mākete (which also happens to mark our first birthday!) The Christchurch Vegan Society is a charity so we can't pay people to attend the mākete, but you are welcome to ask for a koha from those who get their face painted.

If you're interested, please send us a PM or email promotions@veganchristchurch.org.nz
