The Human Library for children

Imagine an eight year old asking a homeless person where they sleep at night? Or a person with disability about how fast their electric chair goes? This could be the scene at Copenhagens Culture House at Islands Brygge on June 23rd.

A bookshelf full of content aimed at helping children understand diversity and find answers to questions that parents often cannot give the answers to.

Bullying, homelessness and more

As always the Human Library is free for all and we expect to publish topics on bullying, self harm, disability, mental health, gender, occupation, ethnicity, religion and more. Readers from the age of 6 are welcome with a parent or guardian.

Pilot with city of Copenhagen

The Human Library for children is a pilot project developed in partnership with Kulturhuset Islands Brygge. Through a series of events with especially tailored content, we want to have a closer look at how children take advantage of the Human Library as a learning platform.

The June 23rd event is the first in a series that will run through the fall.
