WILLIMANTIC- Eastern Connecticut State University is presenting “Hair,” an event that focuses on the cultural significance of hairstyles, at 7 p.m. on Nov. 29 in the Student Center Theatre. The event will explore the many cultural and personal attachments between people and hair. Organized by Eastern student Michael Piña, the program will feature stories on topics relating to hair. Hairstyles can often convey or misrepresent a person’s identity, faith beliefs and experiences of hair loss due to medical issues or therapy. The event will compile stories into a short play, with the hope of building an understanding through acknowledging various hairstyles. People’s real-life stories will be read at the program, with the intention of broadening students’ cultural horizons. For more information on the event, contact the Intercultural Center at 860-465-5749 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
