Cut Festival | Jamie Lewis Hadley & Blank Billboard CIC

Barbering is a centuries old practice that has united communities and helped us to find a way to illustrate our own identities. From the black barbershops of 1920’s middle America, to the strong influence the Turkish barbers have in East London the barbershop has been a stronghold of various communities across the World.

The festival brought together established and emerging artists, barbers and activists who creatively use the history, politics and craft of barbering to explore themes of gender, race, community and social healing in their respective practices.
