#Haters was born as a theatre production addressing knife crime, urban regeneration and social identity. The play toured education institutes and theatres in 2015 and 2017. Following feedback from our audience, the project has been developed to continue to make a difference empowering young people and communities.
#Haters youth and community programme is a film-making project for young people aged 15 to 25 living in areas of Hackney and Wandsworth affected by urban regeneration and high crime rates. The project aims to support community cohesion and prevent and address violent crime.
Participants will have an opportunity to develop critical skills and articulate their personal views of the issues addressed by #Haters through a series of film-making workshops. The short film created by the young people will be presented to an audience including their families and invited traders, developers and local MPs working in the boroughs. After the screening, the audience and the young people will take part in a facilitated debate for an opportunity to talk about the problems affecting their community.
