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.
"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.
Our 100% vegan menu is made onsite by our talented team of cooks. Daily specials every day, fresh home-baked cakes, and our infamous freakshakes!168.64 KB
