Hobart Human Library

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 ‘books’ are Tasmanians who have experienced stereotyping, prejudice or discrimination and trained with us as community educators. Their personal experience of bias may be because of their culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, appearance, mental health, or a disability.

Who this service is for

Schools and workplaces,
Also people who have experienced discrimination can become a human ‘book’ and undertake training to tell their story in workshops that raise awareness of the effects of discrimination.
