One Mic Real Talk Meets Liberty Human Rights!

One Mic Real Talk

07-02-2022 • 44 mins

This last two years has seen some huge developments in our political landscape, with the introduction of the PCSC Bill, and the public outcry against this, the Immigration and Borders Bill, trying to be pushed through the House of Commons now, the demonstrations against the police officer's murder of Sarah Everard and the mobilisations against the murder of George Floyd. With this in mind Art Against Knives welcomed Liberty, the human rights organisation to discuss how the PCSC would impact the young people that come to our spaces, and after this sat down with our man DJ Fred for an interview about who they are and why they do what they do. This was an extremely interesting interview and I know we learnt loads from them, as well as the team from Liberty being fantastic guests.


In our decade as charity, it’s never been harder to secure funding. Youth services have faced a decade of austerity, they’ve been dismantled and drastically underfunded. The effect of this has been compounded by the pandemic.

We need a minimum of £80k to ensure we can keep our space open 3 days a week with the specialist staff team in place to effectively support young people. Our ambition however, is to have it open 5 days a week, this would cost us £145k. We’re on a mission to secure this by February 2022, and we need your help.
