|20 June 2019||10:00||The Human Library is designed to build a positive framework for conversations that can challenge stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue. It’s a place where real people loan their time to ‘readers’, where difficult questions are expected, appreciated and answered (there are no stupid questions!)
The idea is simple: library guests can choose which volunteer they’d like to “check out” based on titles the human books assign themselves. Past titles have included: “Fat Woman,” and “A Questioning Christian.”, "Finding my birth parents after adoption". Visitors then sit down with their books for half an hour or so to listen to them share their personal stories.
The project is meant to combat prejudice by giving people a chance to connect with someone they may have never had a chance to speak with otherwise.
If have a story to tell, please be a 'book'! If you can commit even 30 minutes between 11am and 3.00pm on the day of the festival to answer questions that people find it difficult. Full details|| Add event|
