The Human Library

The Challenge: The original Human Library utilized in-person interactions to forge intimate and unforgettable conversations with people from diverse backgrounds. But with the short life-span of the event and an absent online presence, there’s little opportunity to experience it. How can we translate the essence of the Human Library into an online, interactive experience?

The Solution: A new mobile website was created to promote a more accessible, efficient and intuitive experience while adding a new component: the Lending Library. The Lending Library would collaborate with organizations, like the Film Board of Canada, to digitize the Human Books into 5-minute documentary-style videos that would be viewed, collected and shared through the mobile site.
