I recently checked out my first book from the Human Library: Homelessness. I read it in an open courtyard next to the Impact Hub in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It was likely the most honest and direct conversation I’ve had with a fellow human who has experienced homelessness.
Confused? So was I, until Turisaina (Turis) Tukiman clued me in.
Turis is the Operations Lead at Human Library in Malaysia. Originally created by a group of young activists in Copenhagen, the Human Library is now a global movement. It’s purpose is to build a positive framework for conversations that can challenge stereotypes and prejudices.
