Knife Angel to visit Chelmsford with anti-violence message

Thousands of young people to be empowered by anti-violence monument’s Chelmsford visit

Chelmsford is launching an innovative programme of events to support the arrival of a huge anti-violence sculpture in the city this September. The 27ft National Monument Against Violence and Aggression, known as the Knife Angel, is made from100,000 blunted blades and it travels around the country warning communities of the terrible consequences of knife crime and aggression.

The sculpture arrives in Central Park on 6 September and education, outreach and workshops to spread its anti-violence message are already underway. The visit to the city has been organised by youth organisation Keep It 100 Essex with the support of a wide range of partners, including Chelmsford City Council and the Violence and Vulnerability Unit, a national team of community safety experts.

Alongside the arrival of the Knife Angel next month there is the new KI100 Awards for under-25s in Essex.
