“In the future, every child will be given a pair of scissors and invited to shape our destinies. In the future, every child will be granted full citizenship rights; encouraged to vote, run for office and drive streetcars. In the future, children will teach and adults will learn; a playground will be built on every battlefield; and candy will be free. In the future, children will be powerful creatures able to cross the street without looking both ways, and hold their breath underwater forever and ever and ever.”—Darren O’Donnell, Mammalian Diving Reflex

Following successful presentations worldwide including Launceston, London, Cork, Norwich, Regina, Perth, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Montreal, Derry, Milan, Victoria, Oslo, Terni, Bologna, Vancouver, Sydney, Dublin, New York City, Portland, Birmingham, Los Angeles and Toronto, Haircuts By Children invites you to take part in an event that will test your courage and faith in the future.
Surrender your preconceptions (and your scalp) to the aesthetic choices of these mini-barbers. A whimsical piece that plays with the enfranchisement of children and the level of trust we afford them, and creates a dialogue between groups not used to such a reversal of power, especially one in which our vanity is put to the test!

Let them cut your fears away as they prove themselves leaders of the future, capable and responsible citizens and dedicated coiffures.
