Peace Beats aims to introduce peace to young people in London where there is a persistent problem of violent youth crime. Gang crime is a common occurrence in several of the districts of south London and the young people who have been involved in these gangs are likely to have experienced no direction or sense of ownership of their own lives. Thus the idea of Peace Beats was created, with music, venue, promotional material, and videos all chosen to bring awareness of the possibility and the value of peace to this young audience.

The PeaceBeats project has been a success and has received funding from the Metropolitan police who have recognized that getting young people involved in various positive activities within the community is likely to provide a counterpoint to anti social behaviour.
