Founded five years ago in response to the stabbing of Central Saint Martins student Oliver Hemsley, London-based non-profit Art Against Knives (AAK) holds regular art sales showcasing the work of young people affected by knife crime, alongside pieces donated by established artists and AAK supporters such as Tracey Emin, Antony Gormley, Rankin and Banksy.


Its latest fundraising sale, The Brighter the Better, features original works and limited-edition screen prints by 10 up-and-coming artists, including Hattie Stewart, Rob Flowers, Archie Proudfoot and Annu Kilpeläinen. All profits will go towards supporting the charity’s creative workshops, run in collaboration with high-profile organisations, to give young people at risk from gang culture access to training and employment opportunities.


Art is also the driving force behind King & McGaw prints for Do The Green Thing or discover the jewellery brand giving back to local charities in Bali and Cambodia.
