A human library is a concept where people are your books. You can borrow a human being for 20 minutes and hear them sharing their wonderful stories. You can also ask questions and interact with that person (a human book) and learn more about their experiences. The concept was introduced by Ronni Abergel and his brother Dany with colleagues Asma Mouna and Christoffer Erichsen. They created their first human library to challenge prejudice and stereotypes in the society in 2000, Copenhagen as a project for Roskilde Festival.
India’s first human library was introduced in Hyderabad by Harshad Fad. Now, the concept will be coming to Delhi at Innov8 Connaught Place. Expected turn out is 500-600 people and the entry will be based on first come first serve basis. The venue is located at an accessible location which is 5 minutes away from Rajiv Chowk Metro Station. You can check out more details about Innov8 CP here.
