"Let's start our own Human Library" workshop
3:00pm - 5:00pm
Multi-purpose Room, Counseling and Wellness Center, Counseling and Wellness Center, 5/F, lift 3, Main Campus, HKUST

Don't judge a book by its cover! In a Human Library, readers borrow human beings serving as open books have conversations they would not normally have access to. And in a Human Library, human books defy a stereotype.

 

 

Human Library has become trendy in the recent few years and it has started to be talked about in Hong Kong. It creates a safe place to line up people with different backgrounds to learn about another person's story in the real-life with an aimed topic, with a target to challenging stigma and stereotypes through dialogue.

 

SEN Support has invited Dr Chitat Chan of the Human Library Hong Kong to give a workshop on how to be a "book" to tell others your personal experience with your topic -- it is a place where difficult questions are expected, appreciated and answered. In the workshop, you will learn about:

  1. The background and development of Human Library in the World and in Hong Kong
  2. Readers and Human Books in a Human Library
  3. Rules and regulations in a Human Library
  4. Skill workshop

 

While it is not compulsory, SEN Support will assist interested students to serve as the human books to organize a Human Library on Special Educational Needs on campus in Spring 2020 term.

 

Light refreshment will be provided in the workshop. Please register on or before 11 November 2019, Monday.
