Speakers & Presenters:

1PM ◊ Jo-Anne McArthur is an award-winning photographer, author, and educator based in Toronto, Canada. Through her long-term body of work, We Animals, she has been documenting our complex relationship with animals around the globe for fifteen years.

Thousands of these images are made available for free to anyone helping animals at She also co-founded the Unbound Project to document the women on the front lines of animal advocacy. McArthur is a sought-after speaker and is the author of two books, We Animals (2014), and Captive (2017). 

12PM ◊ Berto Calkins, also known as Tatted Vegan, was born and raised in New York City. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from the City College of New York with a B.A in Communications (Advertising/Public Relations). It was while living in California that he decided to go vegan after reading an article that mentioned that it is not good karma to eat animals.

Berto has been vegan since April 2014. He is also a Certified Personal Trainer, who not only advocates for animal rights through fitness, but also promotes ending the exploitation of animals through food and fashion.

11AM ◊ Local musicians Will Play & Nina Mars will be joining us earlier in the day to perform some live music. Combining 25 years of performing experience with compelling, original music, Will Play and Nina Mars create a musical landscape like no other. The audience is taken along on a sonic journey that includes a unique mix of folk, jazz, and world music – with an occasional polka!

Stephanie Nardi-Cyrus, RDN of Muddy Foot Nutrition will be joining us throughout the day for an “ask a vegan dietitian” booth at the event. She is a non-diet dietitian and believes that health can come at all sizes. She is passionate about love, for the self, for other humans, and for all whom we share the world with. Bring her any questions you have about transitioning and thriving as a vegan!
