Human Library: Let’s not judge a book by its cover

We live in deeply polarized times. Growing divides between groups in our communities and the world needs a safe space to try and find common ground and learn about each other’s differences. The ‘Human Library’ is, in the true sense of the word, a library of people. Readers can borrow human beings (mix of students and staff) serving as open books and have open and honest conversations free from judgement. Every human book from our bookshelf, represents a group in our society that can be subjects of prejudice, stigmatization or discrimination because of their lifestyle, diagnosis, belief, disability, social status, ethnic origin etc.

Come and join this informal affair, allowing students, academic, educational and support staff the time to mingle, learn of their experiences from both sets of eyes and discuss as to what we can do for each other to ensure and safe and happy learning environment.
