Living Books®, an event in which members of our community volunteer to share the experiences that have shaped their lives and identities in brief one-on-one conversations, in a safe and respectful environment. It also provides a platform for open and honest conversations that can potentially lead to greater understanding, acceptance and social cohesion in the community.
During the event, “readers” will be able to speak with our ‘Living Book’, ask questions and listen to their stories.
