Knife crime prevention
Building upon the success of Virtual_Decisions: GANGS, West Midlands Police and the Home Office funded the research, development and distribution of anti knife crime virtual reality film, Virtual_Decisions: KNIVES.
Virtual_Decisions: KNIVES addresses issues around carrying knives and the potential tragic consequences.
It is a tool to help stem the epidemic that is ending young lives.
Following the immersive 11-minute VR film, a creative arts workshop then explores the issues raised in more depth. Through discussions and drama exercises the young people are able to reflect on their own personal journey within the VR and compare it to that of others, making it a user-led – and user shared – experience.
