Imagine having a face-to-face conversation with a complete stranger as you would a member of your own family - what would you ask? How would you feel? And what would you want to know?

The Wright Family Foundation want to invite members of the public to be a part of a unique social project, called the Human Library.

Based on a concept develop in Denmark, the Human Library is a place where you can 'check-out' people as you would books, 'loaning' them for a period of time and learning about them through conversation.

As you would learn something new in the pages of a non-fiction title, now is your chance to learn something unexpected through the act of conversation.

The goal is to break down stereotypes by putting people who may never have met in a room together and seeing what eye-opening experiences can be shared in this supportive space.

The event is on at Baycourt's Addison Theatre, June 4 and 5, 10am- 2pm each day.

It is free to attend, you can find more information about the event, click here.
