Metro support Art Against Knives

10 July 2012
Art Against Knives (AAK) is the youth-led charity which through arts initiatives, works tirelessly to reduce the root causes of knife crime.  Metro has been a continued supporter of the charity but when a photography piece by our own staff member was chosen to be exhibited in their Shoreditch Gallery we became involved on a different level. 

New Business Developer here at Metro, Katie Palmer has been directly affected by knife crime and wanted to contribute personally to the great work AAK accomplish.  

Katie comments, “It was an amazing opportunity for me to be involved in this project.  When something affects you personally, you feel frustrated and powerless to do anything, often dealing with emotions of helplessness and anger. AAK allows Art to be a tool for communication, providing opportunities and education to less fortunate individuals. This in turn breaks down bridges and unites people in working toward the same goal.

“I’m immensely proud to have one of my prints hanging for sale in the gallery the funds for which will ultimately help not only my brother but the fantastic charity as a whole - turning a negative into positive”

AAK started life as an exhibition organised by Central Saint Martin’s students and friends of Oliver Hemsley after his tragic and unprovoked stabbing in 2008.  The exhibition quickly swelled to become the most exciting art event London had seen for years with work donated by the likes of Antony Gormley, Tracey Emin, Wolfgang Tillmans, Rankin, Tim Walker, Vivienne Westwood, to name but a few, as well as scores of CSM students and artists from the East End
