The Living Library event took place on the 11th of May at the Inn of France (Auberge de France), Medieval City of Rhodes that was provided by the Region of South Aegean and the French Consulate.
The University of the Aegean – School of Humanities and the Municipality of Rhodes assisted in spreading the word of the event.
The venue had multiple working rooms to host the readings of the human books and a set up convenient to overview spaces to ensure the procedure in a seamless way.
The Living Library started at 10 a.m. and reading rounds ended up around 1 p.m., followed by the evaluations and taking photos. Each reading-session time lasted for some 25 minutes (“reading”+questions).
For one Human Book we had to interpret to English, so the reading lasted 10 minutes longer – 35 minutes in total. After that, we had 10 minutes break for the Books to rest and the readers to have some water, beverages, snacks etc. and find out where is their next Book to read.
