Peter Atakpo “It’s surprising what you hear when you listen”

Nigerian-born Peter came to Britain in 2010 and works as a barber in Clapham, London. In a collaboration between Empathy Museum and Migration Museum, Peter shared his experiences of migration for ‘A Mile in My Shoes’ where visitors of a giant shoe shop can literally walk a mile in the shoes of a person whilst listening to their story. His barber shop also provided material for Inua Ellam’s critically acclaimed play, Barber Shop Chronicles. Peter shares what qualities are needed in his role as a barber.
