On 20th November 1pm-3pm at The New Art Exchange 39 – 41 Gregory Boulevard, Nottingham, NG7 6BE you are invited to a ‘Hair Do’ and Afro Hair Party!
SKN, Museumand and The National Caribbean Heritage Museum would like you to contribute to an event for a future exhibition that will launch in the new year at the New Art Exchange in collaboration with us.
Plaits, dreadlocks, cornrows, bantu knots, finger waves, twists, braids or relaxed hair… our hair comes in many shapes and styles. Let’s celebrate the significance of afro hair. Take a trip down memory lane as we share some hair and beauty memorabilia from the past 50 years.
Everyone will then be invited to contribute to our video blog and pose for a professional photo portrait – so why not come along wearing your hair the way it best expresses you!
During the session we want to hear about your hair experience and explore what your hair means to you, what it means to the outside world and what it means to the Black community.
The event is free to all. Men, women, children and families are all welcome.
Complimentary tea, cake and Caribbean patties will be served for all who attend.
Free digital copies of your photo portraits will be given to all participants.
If you would like to join us as we discuss and celebrate hair, we would love to hear from you.
Places are limited so please contact our team on 0746 918 9550, or at email@example.com to find out more or book your place.
