The Living library

We were delighted to again welcome the Living Library back to the university’s Falmer campus.

The library is designed to challenge prejudice and stigma and offers students on our social science courses the opportunity to hear the stories from volunteers who act as ‘books’.

The 1 to 1 book sessions cover a wide range of ‘titles’ which have previously included: bipolar, older trans women, refugee, living with HIV and Jewish and queer. Readers also have to the opportunity to ask questions.

The library is brought to us by MindOut, a local LGBT mental health project and we look forward to welcoming them back next year.
