What is AMANI?

AMANI means 'Peace' in Swahili and 'Aspiration' in Arabic

Based on the true story of Amani Simpson, AMANI is the short film with a great cast, including Joivan Wade (The First Purge, Shiro's Story & Doom Patrol) and guest starring Chris Preddie OBE. The film depicts the inner reflections of a young man battling with the consequences of his actions and wider impact on those around him after being stabbed seven times.

Our Empowerment Workshops

AMANI is a conversation starter and explores themes that unfortunately many young people are far too familiar with. We provide a safe, interactive environment for young people to positively explore themes using discussion and self-reflection exercises. Our workshop leaders and guest speakers include professionals, actors from the film and those with lived experience of the topics we cover.
