Living Library – borrow an individual like a book

The Living Library is a fun event where you borrow a person and have a 20-minute one-to-one conversation.

Our human books reflect the stories of people with lots of different experiences in Belfast, including people who have sought asylum, the first MLA from a minority ethnic background, a nun who spent years living in an enclosed order, a community activist from the Traveller community and many more interesting life experiences.

Registration for the event is essential.

To register, email

The event venue will be confirmed following registration.

This event is part of our DiverseCity programme, exploring our diverse and shared stories and the communities, cultures and traditions that make Belfast.
