Why do we do it?
The festival provides the opportunity for teams, managers and colleagues to hear from authors and then discuss topics that would previously have been unlikely in a work setting.
The Human Library
For 2022, we added an additional feature to our festival line up – the Human Library. This international organisation aims to tackle prejudice using a library analogy, by lending people rather than books. It aims to create a safe space for dialogue where topics are discussed openly between our human books and their readers. It was a safe place where difficult questions were expected, appreciated and answered.
