    Human Library Team

    Strathclyde Students' Union

    This opportunity takes place from 10 Sep 2018.

    The Human Library gives direct access to someone else’s experience, by allowing people to ‘borrow’ a person for a conversation. This might be someone who has significant personal experience or a particular perspective to share. The Human Library can be used to challenge stereotypes and prejudices, to explore diversity, and to stimulate conversations that otherwise might not happen. There are numerous different ways you could get involved: you could help with planning the event, get people to come and read as a Floorwalker, help readers decide which title to explore as a Matchmaker or share your story by becoming a Living Book. The aim is to host 2 events per year.
