Whether you’ve applied to be a ‘book’ in Storyhouse’s first Human Library (see above for details) or are just interested in coming to the training, please join us for a training session facilitated by Katy Jon Went, the Human Library UK Co-ordinator (Katy is travelling nearly five hours to Chester to deliver the training so this is a unique opportunity!). The training will give everyone involved in the Human Library all of the information required to make the first Human Library at Storyhouse a success.

During the training, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the Human Library, but in the meantime you may find these links helpful:
