Using Living Books to help to develop understanding across diverse experiences and cultures

10.00-11.30 Wednesday 10th March via Zoom

Philippa Price will share her experience of helping to organise ‘A
Brave New World: Resilience and community’, an online event at
Swansea University to promote dialogue, reduce prejudices and
encourage understanding through Living Books. Living Books were
recruited from the university’s staff and student community. Each
Book had a story to share that encapsulated the themes of resilience
or community. Visitors to the event borrowed a Living
Book(s) for a 15-minute personal conversation during which they
were encouraged to ask questions and learn more about the Book.
Philippa will talk about how the idea came about and explain the
planning and preparation that was involved in holding the event.
There will be time at the end for an informal chat so delegates can
ask questions and discuss ideas.
10.00-11.00 Presentation (questions encouraged)
11.00-11.30 Informal discussion (bring a beverage!)
This CPD event is aimed at those who are interested in hosting a
similar event or would like to find out more about the concept.
