Can music really make you kill someone? Set amongst drill artists’ own responses to the heavy-handed criminalisation of their music, this panel looks at the causes behind youth violence as understood by those who have lived it, and questions the current state response, from stop and search to the imprisonment of musicians. What would it take for our young people to live in peace, and how can TWT attendees be part of building that change?
