Nov 3: Living Library Pilot

Living Library Pilot

UBC Asian Library in partnership with the Pacific Canada Heritage Centre – Museum of Migration (PCHC-MoM) will co-host their first LIVING LIBRARY event!

 

A Living Library Program makes people—rather than books—available for checkout. In the Asian Library context, such a program would provide a space for distinguished individuals who have Asia-related experiences or backgrounds to make connections with students and community members. The overall theme of the program is to raise awareness of diverse groups and perspectives.

 

Featured “Human Books”:

  • Simon Choa Johnston (playwright & artistic director)
  • Jeongeun Park (UBC Postdoctoral Research Fellow)
  • Alejandro Yoshizawa (filmmaker)
  • Danvic Briones (artist)
