Venue: Frenchay Library
Venue Location:
Time: 12:00-14:00

Have you ever seen a person and wondered which personal experiences in their life have shaped them to be the person that they are today? Visit our Living Library to speak to your fellow students and staff at UWE Bristol to help eliminate stereotypes and to create a safe space for anyone here at UWE Bristol.

The Living Library is being organised to bring awareness to the personal experiences that UWE Bristol staff and students have faced in their lives. Due to October being Black History Month, we thought this would be a prime opportunity for black students and staff to be able to discuss any personal plights to any students or staff who are wanting to attend this event!
