VICE report from the Human Library
The international news site VICE visited the Human Library in Hyderabad, India. Through the VICE reporter, the viewer is invited to a taste of what it feels like being a reader at the Human Library. You also get a look behind the scenes, as the video presents some of our amazing books, from our book depot and you meet the driven volunteers behind the Human Library Hyderabad. More uniquely, the reporter is courageous to let himself be published as a book, and goes on to describe his experience – both as a reader and as a book.
“This is a place where difficult questions are expected, appreciated, and hopefully answered by the books.”
As stated above, by the founder of the Human Library Hyderabad, Harshad Fad, our goal is always to have the difficult – and real – conversations, between the readers and the books. The Human Library Hyderabad has worked since its establishment a year ago and has already influenced more than 5000 readers! Furthermore, it has made an impact on its surrounding society, inspiring the formation of more Human Libraries and human books – and most recently, delivering content to Microsofts Confluence Conference in April 2018.
Watch the VICE video below, and be inspired by the driven and motivated people that are dedicated to building a safe space where you can challenge the stigma and stereotypes – through something as simple as open and honest conversations.
