Human Library@PuSh Arts Festival 2013, Vancouver Public Library, Vancouver, Canada

January 18, 2013 @ 12:00 pm - January 20, 2013 @ 4:00 pm

A Human Library will be featured as part of the many events that take place in Vancouver, Canada during the PUSH International Performing Arts Festival 2013.

The event will reappear for three weekends straight as part of the festival program. That should provide local readers and visitors to the festival with ample opportunity to pick up a title that can challenge their perceptions and views.

From Metro News:
Vancouver playwright Dave Deveau is the curator of the Human Library. He said the project is an important way to connect with people who have radically different viewpoints.

“It’s really rare to be able to sit down and … talk one-on-one with a person who we probably wouldn’t necessarily strike up a conversation with,” he said. “It lets us peer, very briefly, into their lives and their struggles and find that core human relatability.”
