    In August 2013, Apples and Snakes presented an explosion of spoken word, films and music in response and in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr's historic "I Have a Dream Speech". This extravaganza was the culmination of a wider programme of artist commissions and participation programmes that matched artists with community groups of all ages, to discuss equality, civil liberties and freedom in the present day, the legacy of the speech and the US Civil Rights movement as a whole. The resulting event stood not only as a celebration of this historic event but as a vibrant call to arms for a powerful new generation to stand against inequality and oppression of all kinds in todays society, the electric atmosphere on the day perfectly capturing the spirit of those who had gone before. The live event featured: Commissioned poetry film pieces from AJ McKenna, Conrad Kira, Vanessa Kisuule, Rik Sykes and Deborah Stevenson in collaboration with filmmakers Mellow 9, Anthony Batchelor, Laura Degnan, Misha Vertkin, Chris Keenan. Music commissions from Zena Edwards & Drew Horley and Dizraeli. Films and live performances in the Ballroom from the Architects Young Writers Group, the Elders group and Malika Booker. A public march from the Jubilee Gardens. Live performances from Dizraeli & Cate Ferris, Zena Edwards, Hollie McNish, Charlie Dark & The Venus Bushfires, Salena Godden and The Last Poets.

            One Love was shot in East Harlem between the blocks of 92st-96st. East Harlem is one of the origins in where Hip Hop is very prominent. Historically a majority of the aftermath of the Civil Rights Movement, inspired the development of culture and Arts especially from a Hip Hop stand point. Artist such as Wander Acosta (Lower Class Citizens), Abiodoun ( The Last Poets), and The Legendary MIC (The Welfare Poets) share their views on the fundamentals of Hip Hop as a constructive aspect of existence especially in the struggles that exist for minorities today.
