People are open books: the Human Library project
May 12, 2011 § 2 Comments
Do you have a library card? If so, go to the nearest library and check out a person. Not a book. A human being. A person to keep for half an hour or so, and talk to. A person, a history, a culture to discover. People “on loan” are from varied sexual, religious, cultural and ethnic backgrounds. The purpose? Breaking down prejudices with personal story-telling. This is the idea behind Human Library.
