DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION:Share your story w/the Living Library Project at Hart House by Sun., Feb 5

Category :: Education
DETAILS: If you have a compelling story you’re willing to share as part of a series of 30-minute conversations then we want to hear from you. The Living Library Project –- an experience designed to create dialogue, promote understanding and reduce prejudice –- is currently seeking submissions for our March 7, 2012 event. If you are an open-minded individual who appreciates dialogue, different (and sometimes differing) opinions, cultivating awareness and the exchange of information primarily with students, you’ll want to sign up for this opportunity. Deadline is Sunday, February 5, 2012 at midnight. FREE

Please Note: While we do read all applications, due to the high volume of responses not all “books” can be selected this time around.

ABOUT THE LIVING LIBRARY PROJECT:
The Living Library Project is an event designed to create dialogue, promote understanding and reduce prejudice. A collection of "human books" (widely varied in gender, age, and cultural and religious backgrounds) is offered on "loan" to visitors. Facilitated by Living Library Librarians, visitors "borrow" the human book for up to 30 minutes for an open conversation. The informal "Reader-Book" interaction is a positive and safe way to question and explore preconceived notions around race, class, gender, religion and sexuality, and share personal narratives in an open, face-to-face dialogue. We hope to promote tolerance and deepen the understanding of social justice, equity and diversity.

ABOUT HART HOUSE:
Hart House is a living laboratory of social, artistic, cultural and recreational experiences where all voices, rhythms and traditions converge. As the vibrant home for the education of the mind, body and spirit envisioned by its founders, Hart House encourages and supports activities that provide spaces for awakening the capacity for self-knowledge and self-expression.
