Granville Barbershop (2018) - Information & Cultural Exchange

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 and 3.

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.

Granville Barbershop will continue through Term 3; and will focus on four program streams:

  • The Groom Room: Graduates from the Term 2 program will be returning to further extend their barbering skills in a more advanced barbering program; and will be joined by a new cohort of ‘beginner’ barbers;
  • The Renaissance Scholars: Members of the Granville Boys High School Renaissance Scholars program will undertake an immersive enrichment program that includes excursions to museums, galleries and institutes of scientific research;
  • Groom Room Screen Productions: Screen-based training and production for students to explore, experiment with and create screen and video works;
  • User X: Students will explore the rapid, DIY digital art content creation and storytelling through the platform of Instagram.
