Event description

Description

Did you know, you are more likely to get stabbed if you are also carrying a knife?


On Monday 18th February, from 12-6pm (during the half-term holidays), I'm hosting a unique event on knife crime at Luton Sixth Form College, by utilising art as a medium to raise awareness.



"22 seconds to murder" is an artistic representation in memory of Azaan John Kaleem (AJ) and other victims of knife crime. On 22nd March 2018, an 18 year-old boy from Luton, AJ, was victim of a 22-second attack, where he was stabbed in broad daylight, which ultimately resulted in his death.

What to expect on the day:
  • 12-1.30 - performances
  • 1.45-3.45 - panel discussion
  • 4-6pm - self defence against knife crime, anger management techniques & more performers
  • All day (12-6) - artwork exhibition & live art mural being created
If you would like to get involved, whether that's to volunteer on the day, attend the event, speak about the issue, create artwork in advance to be exhibited, do a performance or create art on the day, let me know! Please email: contact@haleemaali.com to get involved.

I've also launched a social media campaign to kick-start the project. I'm asking the public to post a video (try to make it 22 seconds long as a challenge!) or a written piece (if you can do this in 22 words, even better!) on the question: 'If you had 22 seconds to live, what would you do?'. Add the hashtag #22SecondsToMurder and let's get this viral!

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

There is no minimum or maximum age limit! It is open to all. You do not need to bring ID however the college require all attendees to sign in at reception.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please email me at contact@haleemaali.com or find me on social media at @contacthaleema

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. The event is open to all regardless of whether you have a ticket or not, but to get an estimate of numbers, it would be ideal if people sign up.
