Human Library

The Arches & The Wellcome Collection present

Human Library

part of Sexology Season

Sat 16 - Sun 17 May 2015 | 12-2pm & 5-7pm each day | Free, unticketed | 16+

Walk into a library where the books are people and reading is a conversation.

Choose from a wide range of titles that reflect the astonishing diversity and behaviours of the community we live in, and don’t judge a book by its cover…

The Human Library is an international equalities movement that challenges prejudice, exclusion and discrimination through social contact. By connecting people who under normal circumstances might not have had a chance to sit down and talk, the Human Library uses conversation to break down stereotypes.

We’re pleased to announce that we’ll have a BSL interpreter for this event on both days – on Saturday 16th for the 12-2pm session and Sunday 17th for the 5-7pm session.
