Barbershops, buzzing with clippers and conversation, are fertile spaces where style and concepts cross-pollinate. Gifted with scissors and stories, Barbers cultivate a culture of trust and camaraderie among their clients. They practice active listening and empathy building, creating safe spaces of style. In “Barbershop Talk,” we are going to tap into the educational potential of these unofficial professors in an experiential curriculum about nonviolent communication. 40 Neighborhood youth will be empowered to explore identity, conflict resolution, nonviolent communication, artistic expression, all while learning real world hair styling skills.
