Human Library: York is an annual event where people from our community who have experienced stigma, discrimination, and/or prejudice, serve as human “books.” The event creates a safe space where difficult questions can be asked and answered. Attendees (“readers”) check out the books for 30-minute private conversations on the topics the books represent. More information here.
SkillSwap is a barter-based education series. We offer a week’s worth of sessions (up to three per day) four times per year on a variety of topics. Sessions can be in the form of a hands-on workshop, a lecture/demonstration, or some combination of the two. There is no monetary registration fee; instead, each instructor suggests items or services they will accept in exchange for class participation, and a list of items is included with each class description. More info and class schedule here.
