CRIME PREVENTION & SAFER NEIGHBOURHOODS USING DANCE & CREATIVITY
Recently, a Nusound Radio presenter Kanji Ghedia and I were invited as special guests to give a talk at an event organised by members of Soor Seva (Devotion Through Music). The inspiring organisation based in Bexley Heath are dedicated in promoting moral values, faith and culture through their activities. For the latest event, local community officers from the Metropolitan police, audience members of all ages, MP's and other high profile guests came together to discuss ways of reducing crime. My presentation was on how dance, creativity and spiritual growth can be used to help build confidence, develop talent.and offer numerous benefits to help keep the youth involved in positive activities. In the past I had attended the Community Awareness Day organised in East London,UK by the Metropolitan Police to engage with the local community and help with bringing awareness to crime prevention. It was educational and informative, and I think the community members should work closer with the police to help reduce crime and help make our neighbourhoods a safer place.
