National Hate Crime Awareness Week (9 - 16 October 2021)

11th October 2021 |

Why we state there's no place for hate

National Hate Crime Awareness week is a week of action that takes place from 9th – 16th October 2021. It provides an opportunity to educate and raise awareness of hate crime. It is also a time to bring people together to celebrate our diversity and what makes us all great.

This year, SPICE received funding from Manchester City Council and Oldham Council to run a series of events, workshops and training sessions, to raise awareness about what hate crime is and where and how it can be reported. Together, we can help end hate crime and create a community where everyone is welcome, safe and free from harm.

Throughout September we ran a series of workshops where we used arts and crafts to explore what hate crime is and what community means to us. We know talking about hate crime can be a hard thing to talk about, so by using arts and crafts we were able to talk about things in a safe and supportive place, whilst getting creative and having fun.  Here are some photos of the artwork we created:

 

What is a Hate Crime?

Hate Crime can be an act of violence or hostility directed at a person or group because of who they are or what they think they are.
