Unity in Diversity: Human Library Series
February 24 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Nova Vita Domestic Violence Prevention Services and the Brantford Public Library are collaborating to start a new speaker series, Unity in Diversity: Human Library Series. Throughout this free biweekly series community members will share their diverse experiences through stories and conversations.
When we share experiences and stories we spark a connection, we learn about each other’s traditions, practices, and historical truths, and we unlearn false and harmful narratives. Stories convey meaning and purpose that help us understand ourselves and our world. Through stories, we share passions, fears, sadness, hardships, and joys, and we find common ground with other people to connect and communicate.
Come learn about the history of Canada and Brantford, diverse cultures that shape our community, and the experiences and challenges of our community members.
This series will take place through Zoom webinars biweekly from October 14th, 2021 till June 23rd, 2022, 6:30 to 8:00 PM. Registration is required. This is a FREE event but you MUST REGISTER for each event of the series individually. After you register, you will receive Zoom information the day of the event.
*This project has been supported in part by Women and Gender Equality.
