The Canvas: a blank canvas for positivity
We're a not-for-profit vegan cafe, community hub and creative venue incubating social change and grassroots positive activism, by providing a safe, inclusive space that champions kindness and humanity over profits.
We're open until 8pm Sat-Thurs and 11pm Fridays!
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
