Experience - Upcoming Events

In Haircuts by Children by Mammalian Diving Reflex, kids are given the tools to become working hairdressers and the public is invited to have their hair cut, by 9 and 10-year olds. A simple premise, with deep implications. The event - which the Calgary Herald called “Part performance art, part public service, part therapy” - tests our trust in the next generation and measures how far we’re willing to go to empower youth. If we trust them to shape our future, will we let them shape our hairstyles?
