Event details

In collaboration with Stone Soup Academy, an alternative provision free school academy in Nottingham.

Join us at Nottingham’s Metronome for a night of music, film and spoken word. Come together to raise awareness and change perceptions of knife crime in our community. #StandUpToKnifeCrimeNotts

We will be creating opportunities, telling stories, changing minds, talking openly, hearing honest perspectives and helping to raise the issues and perceptions of knife crime in our shared communities. Join us in supporting students and the families that are affected by the many issues that arise from knife crime.

We will challenge perceptions, the judgement of perpetrators and the trivialising of risks involved. Fear, sadness and confusion. We understand that there are always at least two victims when a knife crime attack happens. We all see the ripple effect it can cause within the community, from which many people never recover.
