In our current day and age, there are countless ways to amass knowledge. From searching up something on Google to reading a book about a specific topic, we truly live in the age of information. But have you tried learning something through a strangers’ experience?
As an extrovert, I am always excited to hear about the different stories an individual wants to share, for each experience is unique, so imagine my curiosity when I learned about Human Library SG. As the name suggests, Human Library SG is an organisation that provides a positive environment which aims to challenge stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue. ‘Borrow’ a human book and learn about their stories through conversation as a ‘reader’.
“Come with a question, leave with a story.”
Before COVID-19, Human Library SG would hold their event in physical spaces such as Community Centres and The Red Box, but given Circuit Breaker measures, they too have decided to hold their Human Library sessions online. Human Library SG Online Edition, rounds two and three will be held on 25 May 2020 and 31 May 2020 respectively.
Registration is required for the event, if you’re interested, you can sign up for these online sessions via the Google form here.
If you’re one who require motivation from external forces, why not use this opportunity to encourage yourself to have open and honest conversations with a stranger in a safe environment? Sign-ups are limited to 35 readers per session, if you’ve registered successfully, more details will be shared with you via email. If you’re unable to register for these sessions, fret not for more sessions will be available in the weeks to come.
