Knife Angel comes to Herefordshire!


By 2021 Joanna Hilditch

On the 9th June I attended the Knife Angel conference: Crime in 2021: From Knowledge to Practice.

Inspiring speakers and although a ‘local’ conference it has a very ‘national’ audience (one advantage of zoom). This huge 27 foot sculpture arrives next week in Hereford. It’s an emotional and metaphorical representation of something good and pure that can come out of the destruction of life. Early intervention and education of the vulnerable sectors of society is at the foundation of tackling this other pandemic. If you aren’t at it do take the opportunity to hear the inspiring speakers and watch the films. Contact the organisers through their channels.
