ART AGAINST KNIVES works with at-risk young people living in areas of London affected by knife crime and designs creative opportunities to help them secure employment, education or training.
At Art Against Knives, it is important to us that we don't speak for the young people we support, but provide them with the opportunity to tell their own stories. This short film provides an insight into the work that we do to support young role models within their communities, the impact they have and how they support our work.
Through working directly with disadvantaged boroughs of London we support inspirational individuals striving to make long-term change in their communities. We provide resources, one-on-one mentoring and business support to help them to gain the funding and experience they need to be successful.
By supporting role models we are able to work in disengaged neighbourhoods and ensure that our work benefits those most in need.
We hope, like us, you are inspired...
