Create Not Hate (createnothate.org/ ) was set up by Quiet Storm as a way to inspire young people affected (directly or indirectly) by gang related violence, specifically gun and knife crime, empowering them to develop creative solutions to the situations they find themselves in.
This film documents the success of the first Create Not Hate project we ran; a project we ran with Lambeth Academy that resulted in the film 'A Mother's Tear'.
Subsequently, we have worked with kids in Westminster to design t-shirts challenging the post code barriers, helped launch on an line magazine (Endz2Endz), and various other film-based projects.
In all of these, we have seen the process of creativity as being more important than the end result. But we have always promised to produce something tangible regardless, and have never failed to be blown away by the creativty demonstrated.
