'Hairytage' Event at Peckham Levels for Black History Month

HairytageWe're really proud to be part of Black History Month with Hairytage - a live art experience that explores the profound importance of afro hair to the black identity: from traditions, symbolism and cultural significance to customs and beliefs.

Taking place at Peckham Levels from 13-17 October. From 6pm to 9pm on launch day of 13 October. Exhibition then open daily from 10am - 11pm until 27 October. 


Created by students working with our artist in residence Alix Bizet, audiences will learn about the significance hair has played and continues to play in social groupings, hierarchy, status and bonding in Afro-Caribbean societies as well as within the community of Peckham, with a focus on the hairdressers which have provided a strong social base for many generations of Afro and West Indian men and women.

Afro hair salons provide spaces to learn and embrace the black identity, and with the ever creeping gentrification of local communities, such spaces are becoming increasingly precious.
