Art Against Knives Exhibition

May 02 2009 . 10:50pm

RETNA WRITES:

My friend and fellow artist Stu Lee told me about this exhibit hes participating in to raise awareness on Stabbings happening in the UK. you can learn more of what is about by following this link. http://www.artagainstknives.com/

“Last year a student from Central St Martin’s was stabbed and left paralyzed in an unprovoked attack in Shoreditch.

The night entitled ‘Art against Knives’ which will be held at Shoreditch house on the 5th May aims to raise as much publicity as possible about what has happened in the heart of our community by incorporating everything that Oliver loves in life. The plan is to hold an art exhibition and fund-raising auction compared by Jonny Woo. All of the artwork is going to be supplied by Art students from all over as well as various other well-known designers and artists such as Wolgang Tillmans and Vivienne Westwood. The support shown throughout the community has been amazing, as you can imagine it has had a direct impact on everyone that Oliver knew directly or indirectly.

The aim of this event is not only to support Oliver in everything he will need in the future, but also raise awareness in order to tackle a growing problem in our community. We are working closely with the Home Office and its campaigns, and the family is discussing the best way to tell Oli’s story with several national newspapers. This interest will only heighten as the full extent of Oli’s injuries become clear and the perpetrator’s sentencing takes place at the Old Bailey at the end of March.”
