The Living Library (29.06.2013)

The Living Library is a Youth Power Network Grants project, implemented by MAGEM, which takes place on Saturday 29 June 2013, 10:00 – 17:00, at the MAGEM premises in Famagusta.

The Living Library’s primary aim is to create constructive personal dialogues between people who would normally not have the opportunity to speak to each other and thus challenge common prejudices and stereotypes. Living 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. Living Library can be used to confront stereotypes and prejudices, to explore diversity, and to stimulate conversations that otherwise might not happen.
