The DJMC academy worked in Woolwich south London running a promo campaign where residents spoke to the local police about issues they were facing in their neighbourhood. It was a great way to break down barriers and have their say. The Met police were recruiting local police officers, so it was a great way to have locals employed within the police force.
Behind the badge event took place in Lewisham and was a great success as it was a way for the police to recruit locals into the police force and give residents a chance to have their say. We were commissioned to promote the event get locals involved in the music workshops in south London and this was aimed at adults to break down barriers between to residents and the police.
We have launched some projects in fore street due to the stabbing outside Mac Donald’s and have been striving to make a difference and give young people not only a fun and safe activity but a voice. We have engaged over 50 young people and will continue to engage more young people in arts of music.
During the spring we have been going into a variety of parks and engaging the young people who do not feel comfortable going into their local youth centre. It has been such a fantastic journey and we have engaged hundreds of young people who have really enjoyed taking part in the music workshops. We are looking at going into more parks where anti-social behaviour is at its highest and really strengthening communities.
Outreach workshops in Edmonton have been taking place on a weekly basis for over a year. This has been commissioned by the mayor of London as youth crime is at its highest during the hours of 3-6pm and Edmonton is one of the highest crime rates for youth in the whole of London. The workshops have been fantastic, and we have engaged over 200 young people during these fun and dynamic music workshops. The young people get involved in DJ’ing, rapping, singing, and presenting their own radio shows.
