YouTube Star Humza Arshad Hosts Anti-Violence Workshop

Comedian and YouTube star Humza Arshad visited Harris Academy Peckham recently to hold a workshop on knife crime, gang violence and terrorism.

Arshad, whose YouTube series Badman has won him a huge youth following, said he was moved to speak to schoolchildren by the death of a friend in a stabbing, and the increasing intolerance since the referendum on leaving the EU.

At the school, Arshad (pictured with our students) introduced a short film he has co-directed, Hate, which can be seen on his YouTube channel. As part of the workshop, counter-terrorism police officers discussed some of the issues it raised, as well as the use of fake news to spread extremism, how gangs coerce young people, and homophobia.

After the workshop Farhan, 14, was full of praise. “It was really good, really inspiring, the film was great, it gave a good message,” he said. Fabiola, 14, also praised the film for the way it looked at why people are getting into crime, saying it was “a conversation that isn’t going on in our communities”.

Everyone at Harris Academy Peckham would like to thank Humza Arshad for his inspiring visit. Read a report of the workshop in The Guardian.
