Human Library: Remembrance Day

Share conversations and ask questions to veterans in the special afternoon program on Remembrance Day.

About this experience

This Human Library program is an opportunity to talk to three naval veterans with unique service histories and trades. In group conversations, explore memories, stories, and technical expertise.

The idea of a Human Library is that instead of books, visitors in groups get to talk to multiple people with specific lived experiences, each for a set amount of time before beginning a new conversation with a new "book". Three veterans will join us for this program, and run 3 parallel sessions of 30-minute conversations; there will be a break in between each session. 

Admission to this program is by donation. Please feel free to donate onsite, or let the volunteer at the front desk know you will be donating by card. Registering ensures that we know how many seats to put out!
