    THANKS TO REGENT’S PLACE COMMUNITY FUND AYBI has fully funded filmmaking project comprising of 10 sessions and aiming to consider and critique experiences of youth violence, both how it’s represented in the media and personal experiences. We are aiming to offer a buffet of different forms of creative expression for the young people to get involved in sampling (writing, spoken word, cinematography, sound recording and mastering, making a film). We have some super talented facilitators lined up – rapper, Breis http://www.studentoflife.co.uk/ will work with the group on creating a spoken word/rap piece; music producer, Dwayne Hamilton, on creating and mastering a track; R.C Annie the UK’s leading professional stage fighting coaches – https://www.rc-annie.com/ on creating a stage-fight choreography; plus AWARD WINNING filmmakers hehe… including ME and Wayne Louis, to work on storytelling with cameras, also AYBI boxing and its CEO Albert McEyeson will offer some boxing sessions as well as facilitating a talk show and role play improvisation… Plus on top of all that all participants receive £150 in vouchers for participating.

    The program aims to develop tools for translating communal knowledge into thoughtful action and advocacy as well as to stimulate critical thinking and ability to identify and express forms of violence. We will facilitate investigation of practices of collective self-defence, particularly in relation to the pressures of gang culture and demands social media make to “join in” / conform.
    A key aim is to create space and time, in collaboration with young people, to be creative, present, caring, thoughtful and socially conscious of Camden right here right now. Therefore we consider participants of the program as researchers working towards making a film raising consciousness of issues relating to violence, it follows that the young people will receive a fee for their contribution.
    ELEMENTS
    Boxing: a tool for self-defence, for thinking clearly in moments of high stress, for recognising and diffusing violent situations and preventing coercive behaviours before they escalate.
    For reflecting upon perceptions of strength, weakness, failure, competition, systems of judgment and discrimination and forms of self-defence and self-destruction.
