Cutting Edge

Always An Alternative:
Cutting Edge
15th - 17th February 2022
Exchange Place Studios

Tuesday - Thursday
10am - 4pm

Anthony Olaseinde and Always An Alternative present Cutting Edge, a pop-up exhibition raising awareness of the work they have done to combat knife crime in South Yorkshire.

Anthony's work has included providing eight weapon amnesty bins across the region which have helped take over 300 knives off the streets, and for which he recently received a Points of Light award.

Using the collected blades, local sculptor Jason Heppenstall has created a new artwork celebrating the growth and bravery of those who surrendered their weapons. The sculpture will be unveiled at the exhibition alongside letters, poems and artworks submitted by people who have been affected by knife crime.

A ticketed event on Saturday 12th February will provide a chance to meet Anthony and Jason to discuss the project. Signed copies of Anthony's book One Knife, Many Lives will be available to purchase with a 50% discount for young people. BOOK NOW
