Catching up with Vida Vegan Alumni: Q&A with Leigh-Chantelle
Written by Leigh-Chantelle

Jess and the gals at Vida Vegan Con published this Q&A with me over the weekend. Hope you like it:
My, how time flies! We started this Q & A series at Vida Vegan Headquarters heading into September’s VeganMoFo, and since we received such great feedback and responses from our alumni, we’re excited to continue with a few more final installments. These special interviews offer a glimpse into our past alumni’s upcoming projects, summer shenanigans and reveal what they really learned at VVC2013. They’re sharing which class sticks out in their minds so many months later, and just what they’d like to see more and less of in vegan blogging, a question that’s always on our own minds.
Our next interview is with one of our furthest traveling guests for Vida Vegan Con, (mostly) Australian-based author, international speaker, activist and blogger, Leigh-Chantelle of Viva La Vegan! and the Green Earth Group.
Talks, Panels & Workshop Videos:
- Vida Vegan Con panels: Ethics Beyond the Plate, International Activism and Vegan Invasion: Community Building.
- Talks at the Anti-Fur Society Conference: Australia’s Progresses & Challenges and Promoting Veganism.
- Workshop on Staging Effective Events & Engaging Volunteers at the Critical Animal Studies conference.
- Engaging Abroad panel at the Animal Rights Conference.
I then spent a month in Cambodia, specifically Phnom Pehn, Battambang and Siem Reap before coming to Indonesia. I spent the last few weeks in Magelang, Central Java and then Surabaya, East Java before returning to my beloved Ubud, Bali where I’ll be until the beginning of October when I return home to Brisbane, Australia for aunty duties. I did a lot of media interviews when I was in Java – you can view the articles on my blog, FaceBook or Google+. One of the articles is online – use Google Translate for English. (see the photo attached – Focus Jateng) I’ve just launched 3 new vegan dessert e-books and 1 raw recipe e-book. I’ve completed the text for my upcoming recipe book due out the end of the year and am now compiling my vegan athletes interview book. As always, I have many different projects going.
Stay tuned for the final installments of our Q & A series and some vegan-friendly entertaining tips for the holiday season here at Vida Vegan Headquarters.
