Let’s read people in the Human Library

banner_biblioteca viven-44

To read people instead of books and to have the opportunity to exchange points of view about the story they tell? It’s possible!

Do you know what a Human Library is? It is an event where it is intended to create a safe space for dialogue where issues are openly debated between human books and their readers.

To commemorate the International Day of Migrants (December 18) and the international day of Human Rights (December 10), a Human Library will be held in the Sarriá-Sant Gervasi district.

The aim is to inform about the diversity of migratory histories as well as making visible the inequalities they reflect and the discrimination they suffer.

To get ready for the D-Day, the volunteers who will be the Human Books will be trained throughout the month of November. Throughout the meetings that will be held every Wednesday at the Fundación Putxet, we will be looking at the history of each person, understanding how they are unique, how they can be told and share experiences.

We are waiting for you on Saturday, December 11 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Center de Sarria (Teatre de Sarria). You will have the opportunity to read up to 7 different books and discover the history of people from Colombia, El Salvador, Mali, Senegal …

We will communicate more information throughout November on our social networks!
