On Sunday, the 20th of September, the “Living Library” event will take place in Korolenko State Scientific Library.
“Living Library” is an international project of Danish origin. This action is designed to overcome the stereotypes that exist in society in relation to certain people.
The idea of the event is that it will be possible to “check-out” people like books in a library and listen to their stories. The “people-books” can not talk more than 30 minutes, after which they need to “return to the library.” Time can be extended (by mutual agreement) for another 30 minutes if the “book” is not required by anyone else.
The library contains of the following “books”: “Chiromancer”, “Kauchserfer”, “Master of spiritual practices”, “Psychologist LGBT”, “Director of the Museum of gender”, “Director-puppeteer”, “Ultras”, “Mother of many children.”
Anyone can become a “new book”; you just need to register here.
Entrance is free of charge, but donations are welcome and can be made during a coffee break. Library is open from 12:00 till 17:00, Korolenko alley, 18.
