Granville Barbershop (2018)

Funded by Impact 100 Sydney North and Dooley’s Lidcombe, Granville Barbershop is a multi-streamed project running currently at Granville Boys High School throughout Terms 2, 3 and 4.

Resulting in the school buzzing with excitement and pride, the Term 2 program encompassed barbering in The Groom Room under the mentorship of Charles Lomu; and music making and production in The Groove Room with mentor Chris Hamer-Smith. Producer Leo Tanoi oversaw the daily operations of both.
