A City Seen: Dangerous Associations and Panel Discussion at HOME Manchester, Manchester 2 July 2020 Entrance is free — Visit now

This July, HOME and Manchester Metropolitan University are showcasing the film Dangerous Associations with an online screening and digital panel discussion. The film, which was initially due to screen at HOME, “sees those who have legal, political, academic and personal insight into joint enterprise reflect on what is happening inside the criminal justice system and how we might explain and challenge such injustice.”

Panel member Becky Clarke, from Manchester Met’s Sociology department, and co-author of ‘Dangerous Associations: Joint enterprise, gangs and racism’, explains: “Joint Enterprise is racialised, outdated and effectively targeting groups of young people in our city and beyond. It is a Victorian law that has re-emerged in England and Wales enabling the conviction by association of multiple individuals for one offence.”

Clark will be joined on the digital panel by chair Dr Kathryn Chadwick, part of the Sites of Resistance Collective at Manchester Met, as well as Adam Elliot-Cooper, research associate in sociology at the University of Greenwich, Temi Mwale, a racial justice campaigner and the Founding Director of The 4Front Project, a member-led youth organisation, and criminal barrister Stephen Akisanya who has been in private practice for 25 years and is a member of Great James Street Chambers in London.
