Guns to Goods is a Community Interest Company that recycles metal from guns for use in the production of creative artefacts.

We are an artists’ collective founded in Manchester, England, and partnering organisations who actively work within communities to reduce weapons based crime.

Our goal is to raise awareness of the life affirming positivity of campaigners and champions of peace in local contexts.

A lot of the young people we deal with have lost good friends and family members to gun crime. Creating a symbol that raises awareness and is a constant reminder of the dangers of guns is important.

The goal is a sustained campaign of positive work with communities and schools to develop creative opportunities for young people to join in the efforts to raise awareness, counter gun crime and remove guns from the streets.
