ANTI KNIFE CRIME

Hearts of Talent is changing the narrative for young people from London’s diverse communities by encouraging them to unlock their potential with a performing arts competition like no other - designed to guide young people away from knife crime and unlock their potential.

 

Hearts of Talent was founded by local mum and businesswoman Jasmine Dale and her daughter Amoy Dale to move young people away from extreme violence and gang culture by using the creative arts to nurture self-expression, boost confidence and establish a sense of hope for the future.  With strong partnerships with The FA (Football Association), Slenky and Project Zero and support from NHS North West and the Metropolitan Police #TOGETHER initiative. Hearts of Talent provides a platform for young people to create opportunities to develop talents and forge careers.

YOUTH NETWORK

The primary goal of the project is to instill confidence, tenacity and self-belief within young people, and establish a pan London youth support network to help with career goals, emotional needs and personal
development.

 

Young people will be mentored throughout their journey by celebrated industry professionals, and an aftercare program will be put in place to ensure security and career development continues post event.
 

The long term business plan is to create a self-sufficient performing arts academy and recording studio that is run primarily by young people with the support of industry professionals.

BUILDING ON

SUCCESS

Hearts of Talent, previously known as The Brent Factor (2019), championed young people from Brent, Barnet and Harrow to move away from gang violence and managed to help three young people out of gang culture and into safety. It has engaged with 330 young people to date.


Marcel De Oliviera won The Brent Factor in 2019. This is what it meant to him:


“As a 12-year-old boy approaching my teens, I really felt and still feel I am in the right place at the right time. I say this because I have behavioural challenges namely ADHD. It is a very thin line between choosing the right or the wrong path for me, therefore being part of Brent Factor/ Hearts of Talents raising awareness for knife crime, violence, gun crime has help me to immediately look within myself and fight the good fight - the non-violence fight.”

 

There were 6 auditions held across these 2 locations and attracted 250 young people aged 6 – 25 years old. The Event was opened by the Deputy Mayor of Brent and was followed on stage by the Mayor of Harrow who also attended. Other speakers included Jamaican High Commissioner, Tracey Hanson and Pastors.
