Living Library: Multiculturalism

Lenka Kuricová

The event connected with the Living Library project is organised in cooperation with Amnesty International. In the Living Library there are no actual books, but instead there are people with different, often difficult life stories, usually coping with some kind of discrimination or violations of human rights. The Living Library enables casual discussion, which opens a space for sharing of opinions and obtaining new perspectives on the life around us. The main theme that the living books will discuss in tranzit.sk on June 16, concerns the crisis of multiculturalism and related topics. In Europe we are finding ourselves in a chaos of political changes and a migration crisis. Discussions with living books that have personal experiences and knowledge of these issues provide a stimulating opportunity for receiving information.
