The Living Library Organiser’s Guide

The Living Library Organiser’s Guide

The Living Library methodology presented in this guide aims to create constructive personal dialogues between people who would normally not have the opportunity to speak to each other and thus challenge common prejudices and stereotypes. It is particularly suitable for large scale public events, such as festivals and other gatherings attended by hundreds or even thousands of people. The Living Library is essentially an opportunity for intercultural learning and personal development aimed at people who have little or no access to or time for non-formal educational programmes.

This guide is published by Council of Europe, intended to provide support and direction to Living Library organisers in Europe. The guide has drawn upon the knowledge and experience of Living Library organisers from across the continent, many of whom have been working with the concept for over 10 years.
