The Canvas: a blank canvas for positivity
We're a not-for-profit social enterprise. We galvanise Londoners to connect and create social change, through our welcoming vegan café, our support for grassroots projects, and our belief that no one is too small to have an impact.
In partnership with Action for Happiness, we are London's first Happy Cafe, aiming to create a happier world through our social mission to support grassroots positive activism
"The Canvas is a hub of happiness and an inspiring example of how a community venue can boost local wellbeing, enhance social cohesion, encourage kindness and transform people's lives." - Mark Williamson, Director of Action for Happiness.
We ran a pilot project in summer 2019 to provide free meals to children in Tower Hamlets facing holiday hunger. Watch this space for our summer 2020 plans.
Our 100% vegan menu is made onsite by our talented team of cooks. We're currently serving a post-lockdown reduced menu, please see below.94.74 KB
Why not buy a hot drink or a meal for someone who can't afford it? Our pay-it-forward is available to those in need in our community.
"London's first happy cafe! Lots of events and groups, great vegan food and cake, coffee and beer and you can draw on the walls (bonus)"
