The annual Bali Vegan Festival returns this 6-8 October 2017 with a brand new lineup of inspiring and informative educators, speakers and activists. For the third-year in a row, this aptly Ubud-based festival will bring vegans – or any health- or food-concious individuals – together for 3 days of learning, listening and of course eating!
Established by the Down to Earth Bali company in 2015, the festival aims to inspire people to choose a healthier, more compassionate lifestyle through a plant based eating. However they don’t close their doors to the regular omnivores and ‘flexitarians’ out there; it’s an educational and eye-opening experience for anyone who’d like to learn more.
The festival goes over 3 days and each day includes a mixture of talks, workshops, cooking classes, health classes and film screenings at Paradiso, the World’s First Organic Vegan Cinema – not bad! The program is broad, encompassing interests from activism to health exercises, inspirational lifestyles and more. With activites for adults and children, it promises to be a fun-filled and delicious event!
The Bali Vegan Festival is very excited to announce the line up for this year, led by renowned Cowspiracy/What the Health filmmaker and environmentalist Kip Andersen.
Kip is joined by a range of influential speakers and experts, including ‘May I Be Frank’ Ferrante, a former NYC taxi driver and reformed overweight drug addict; FullyRaw Kristina, founder of Rawfully Organic and a social media superstar; the ever-inspirational James Aspey who undertook a 1-year vow of silence to raise awareness for animals and continues to enlighten around the world; Dr. Susianto Tseng President of the International Vegetarian Union and all-round vegan expert and accomplished author.
Dr. Andréa Paige also joins the line-up, as a speaker and teacher with her workshops on healing and dynamic morning yoga classes. Liat Solomon, founder of Down To Earth Bali and a trained macrobiotic chef will host a workshop on Home Remedy Secrets and give a talk on Food & Emotions – an in depth look at how what we put in our bodies affects our mind and mental state. Suzanne Miles, food researcher and author of Fork It will give a talk titled Fork It: Keys to Amazing Health.
Janette Murray-Wakelin & Alan Murray from Raw Vegan Path will share their inspirational story of setting a new World Record as the only couple over the age of 60 fuelled entirely on raw fruit and veg, wearing barefoot shoes, to run 366 consecutive marathons around Australia. Leading a workshop and talk on vegan desserts is 15-year-old entrepreneur Arielle Chenarra, creator of Thyme & Caramel, a gluten-free and hand-crafted vegan buttercream cakery in Bali. Ketut Susila, a plant-based Balinese Mangku (Priest) will be giving a talk on Offering without Sacrifice, delving into how he educates and helps spread his message of compassion.
Paradiso Ubud remains the epicenter of the festival, with the extensive space hosting the talks and film screenings, as well as a comedy show, daily yoga classes and discussion panels. Paradiso is located just off Jalan Hanoman (road), and adjacent to Bali’s original organic plant-based eatery Earth Café, with customers able to order anything from the extensive menu while relaxing on a variety of comfortable seating options.
Taksu Spa, the partner venue, located just 50 metres away from Paradiso will adopt a fully vegan menu over the weekend, showcasing its award winning raw food and vegan cuisine. Visitors can also enjoy workshops and yoga classes, while members of the internationally trained and accredited Taksu Spa team will present a series of fun demonstrations making your own vegan body scrub.
The Vegan Village, located on the soccer field at the intersection of Jalan Monkey Forest and Jalan Dewisita will be FREE ACCESS and play host to the majority of the market stall vendors, including vegan clothing, food and beauty brands from across Bali and Indonesia. The space will also feature free community yoga, ecstatic dance, concerts and more!
