AN ANTI knife campaign helping young people to get involved in art rather than crime is screening a film about the charity which was formed after a savage attack on an artist in Shoreditch.

Art Against Knives was set up after 21-year-old Oliver Hemsley was savagely attacked in Arnold Circus.

Its first event was an art show backed by celebrity names including Antony Gormley and Tracey Emin.

The film will be screened at The Joiners Arms in Hackney Road on Saturday (May 8) from 11am to 4pm.

The film is being shown as part of Honda's 'The Dream Factory' and we be used throughout the summer at events such as our Barbican takeover with Pride and LoveBox music festival in Victoria Park.
