Black Barbershops in Focus is a research project by Dr Karis Campion exploring how Black-owned barbershops function as community assets in their localities. The project uses ethnography, art and photography to capture barbershops through different perspectives. The exhibition is a culmination of the research, writing, artworks, images and artifacts that have emerged from the three strands of works so far.
The visual and textual elements invite you to explore the potential of the barbershop, as a generative community space, and to contribute towards our collective knowledge about the importance of barbershops in Black British culture. The multiple methods used to carry out the research hold a mirror up to the diverse qualities that characterise Black barbershops. As sites for debate, counsel, relaxation, creativity and culture, they provide fr more than just a haircut.

We all want to make it.
Make it in our chosen career. Maybe make it big.
Sometimes perhaps just make it to pay day.
But whatever our ambition, what unites us all is the desire to thrive, be recognised – and be supported.
And that’s what Lambeth’s Creative Enterprise Zone is all about. Supporting creative people to do amazing creative things without having to leave our amazingly creative corner of south London.
Because we all want to make it – of course – but more than that, we want to Make It in Brixton.
