Human Library Project events

We are developing Human Library Project events in different locations (which are published on the Home Page), such as at the ROSE Community Centre, the Duchess Belle pub, Battersea Park (weather permitting), the Nine Elms Tavern, and other locations. At each location there will be an assembly point which you will need to be at when the meeting starts.

The meetings are organized by a Community Facilitator. The meetings run in the following way:

You turn up at the Assembly point, organize yourself a drink, grab a piece of paper, write your name on it, and hand it over to the Community Facilitator.
First 45 minute session
The Community Facilitator draws all the pieces of paper out randomly and pairs them. You find the person you have been paired with and spend the next 45 minutes getting to know each other as much as you can while giving them the opportunity to get to know you.
There is a short break where if you need to, you organize yourself another drink.
Second 45 minute session
In the second 45 minute session you find someone else who is present to get to know and you pair yourself with them. You spend the next 45 minutes getting to know them and allowing them to get to know you.
End of meeting
The meeting ends at the end of the second 45 minute session where you should have got to know two new people from your community who you previously didn't know. If you want to exchange email addresses and phone numbers at the end of the meeting asnd walk away with a new friend or two you are very welcome to do so.
