Living Library – intercultural meetings
9th February, Sunday, 11:00 – 14:00
How often do you get an opportunity to sit down and have a chat with a representative of a different culture? Is there time in your daily life to listen to the stories of minority groups and foreign communities in Warsaw?
The Museum’s “Living Library” is an occasion to meet and talk. The first such initiative came in the year 2000 from a group of students at the famous Danish music festival Roskilde. Meetings are based on the idea that representatives of different groups become “living books”, which can be “borrowed” to listen to their stories and ask questions. A direct encounter with a representative of a minority group or a foreigner provides a possibility to look at things from their perspective and find out more about their culture.
Please feel welcome to join also our events in the following weeks: meetings and workshops “MultiWarsaw: My Perspective”, run by invited guests – representatives of minority groups and foreigners living in Warsaw. The meetings offer an opportunity to observe the multicultural spirit and experience of Warsaw through the eyes of various groups that shape it.
The cycle of activities “Multicultural Warsaw” is carried out within the project “Jewish Cultural Heritage”, component “Faces of Diversity”.
Organised with the support of the Norway and EEA Grants from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.
