The Barber Collective

Barber Home – 23 July

Celebrate the Barber Collective and its collaborators!

Find out more about the Barber’s youth programme for 16 – 21 year olds and what they’ve been discovering, thinking about and creating.

We showcase two projects with artists Navi Kaur and Hipkiss & Graney which explore far-reaching themes including colonialism, reclaiming histories, manifesto-writing and world building.
