Loan Out A Book (Register for a Hobart Human Library Event)
Don’t judge a book by its cover!
The Hobart Human Library uses the art of storytelling to break down barriers and build empathy. It provides a safe space for ‘readers’ to speak informally with a human ‘book’.
The Hobart Human Library offers a small group workshop or a shorter Inclusion Forum. Human ‘books’ are Tasmanians who have experienced stereotyping, prejudice or discrimination and have trained as community educators. Their personal experience of prejudice or stigma may be as a result of their culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, appearance, mental health, or a disability.
Hobart Human Library workshops support Tasmanian education priorities including Respectful Schools, Respectful Relationships Education, and the Child and Student Wellbeing Strategy. It is also the first step in our Let’s Get Together diversity education program. Read more below about the learning intent and curriculum links.
The Hobart Human Library is the first workshop in our Diversity and Inclusion Training Program. Other workshops include Unconscious Bias & Inclusive Language, and Inclusion Strategies. The Hobart Human Library can also be booked for conferences and other events. Read more below.
