What Is Human Library?

The Human Library is designed to build a positive framework for conversations that can challenge stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue. The Human Library is a place where real people are on loan to readers. A place where difficult questions are expected, appreciated and answered.  

E.g. Hugging Life – a tale of a proud young man who did not compromise with his happiness & Magnet Man-a perfect example of someone who did not let the outcomes of his life deter his passion.

About the Event

It helps build understanding for diversity by providing a framework for real conversations about important issues. There will be open and honest conversations that can lead to greater acceptance, tolerance and social cohesion in the community. Real people in real conversations within a framework setup to help facilitate and accommodate the process. All this is because this is an innovative approach to challenging stigma, stereotypes and prejudices through a non confrontational and friendly conversation. The idea of this library is to allow these books to share their stories and allow the readers to widen their perspectives while listening and relating to their experiences.

Global Harmony Trust has taken the initiative to work in line of the above to make our society a better place to live in.
