Spring time has come to London, with a feeling of energy and new life. We're harnessing that energy to invite you to join us in our mission to support positive activism. Want to get more involved with The Canvas? Read on!

The Canvas exists to be a blank canvas for positive activism, and since we opened in 2014, we have facilitated and enabled the launch of over 50 new positive ideas to London, including Fat Macy's supper clubs supporting the homeless, Mike's Table providing meals to service users and refugees, Shoreditch Dog House offering doggy-day care which feeds those in needs in Tower Hamlets via our pay-it-forward board, and the world's first Museum of Happiness.

We're so proud of what we've achieved - but we want to grow that. Would you like to get involved?

Here's how:

Friday Night Owls LATES: Our women-led live performance night is expanding, to include a late-night 10-11pm slot. This is open for live performance including cabaret, burlesque, theatre, comedy and music. Do you have an act you'd like to bring to Friday Night Owls Lates? Email

Wednesday Wise Owls: Our new Wednesday night event where we host robust debates, workshops and talks around urgent issues such as equality, mental health, sustainability and well being. In collaboration with Absolute Alchemy. Do you have an event that would work with WWO? Let us know!

Community Hub incubator for positive activism: Our Community Hub is a space we offer free-of-charge to new positive ideas that need a kick-start in getting off the ground. Do you have a great idea that would improve the lives of others? Get in touch:

Our garden space: Did you know we have a secret garden? It has SO much potential to become an oasis of calm for our guests, plus a space to grow food and compost our food waste, but we need help. Do you have a passion for gardening? Would you like to volunteer your time to help us transform our garden space? Lunch is on us! Email

Our social impact: We're a blank canvas for positive activism, and have worked with hundreds of charities, social enterprises and community groups to launch incredible projects that have helped others. We want to build on this; do you know of a great idea that is looking for a home? A tribe without a base? A cause with no space? We'd love to help! You can simply email an introduction to

For us, Spring 2018 is all about making new friends, expanding our social impact and making our space even more lovely for our guests. We'd love you to join us! Hope to meet you soon!
