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

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

Order a FREE ticket to a showcase of Nottingham talent including rappers, songwriters, spoken word artists and talented students from Stone Soup Academy. Attendees for this event need to be 17 and older.

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.

There will also be a preview of upcoming short film Hollow, directed by Luke Radford.

The film was commissioned by Nottingham CYF, a charity which engages young people at risk of becoming involved in gang activity, Poets Off The Endz, an organisation set up by musician Jah Digga, and the Violence Reduction Unit.

It aims to highlight issues related to knife crime, gang violence, drug abuse and grooming. The film is inspired by lived experiences of young people that have been involved in and impacted by these issues. Many of the young people whose stories inspired the narrative feature in the film.

The lead role in the film is played by one of our Stone Soup students. The film shows the chain of events that leads to someone picking up a knife and the cause and effect of an attack.
