Name: Jack Parker and Pierre Hopkins

Year of the Fix: 2010
Location: Surrey
Campaign: To educate young people about knife crime

We decided to do our Fixers project on knife crime, as we feel the media heavily influences young people’s attitudes towards it.

 

We shot a music video to show how gangs ritualise knife fights, and then the media dramatizes it.

 

We want our music video to be shown around youth clubs and colleges in the hope that young people will see it and decide to make a change and keep the streets safer.

Epsom Fencing Club

Thank you to Epsom Fencing Club, who lent us professional fencers Ellie Jones and Troy Belt to perform in our music video.
