Event Details

Borrow a human e-book! The health of our human books and our clients is our top priority, for that reason our human books are going digital. 

 

The State Library has a large variety of e-resources available to borrow, to learn from and to enjoy. Whats unique about these e-books is that you will borrow a real person with a story to share.

 

The Human Library is a safe and welcoming space where people who may not normally meet can join in respectful conversation about difference and diversity; where difficult questions are expected, encouraged and answered. 

 

Bookings are required. All you will require access to a computer, laptop, tablet or phone that has a microphone and camera. State Library staff will be in contact with a link to access your session.  

 

Human e-books

 

Dylan: From CQ to QCA: my journey through art, culture, and identity

Dylan is black, proud and queer. Moving from Mackay to Brisbane to pursue his passion for art, Dylan has been on a journey of courage and resilience through art, culture, and identity. Dylan studies at Queensland College of Art and uses his creative work to respond to the discrimination and stereotypes he faces as a young South Sea Islander, Aboriginal, and Torres Strait Islander man. From travelling to remote communities to paint murals, honouring significant dates, and creating unforgettable portraits, Dylan offers a unique perspective of growing up in Queensland and what it means to call somewhere home.

Uraine: Stir-fry wombat trousers

Before she was ‘Nana Magic’, Uraine Roelofs lived a vibrant childhood of freedom and play on the Far West Coast of South Australia in an Aboriginal community called Koonibba. Uraine, the daughter of a funny woman and a fisherman, thrived surrounded by bush-tucker gatherings, home-grown produce and ABBA’s Dancing Queen. But it wasn’t all smooth sailing. There were barriers and many issues that Uraine’s family, and her community, had to overcome. All of this contributed to Uraine’s unique perspective, her passion for protecting and nurturing future generations and ensuring the vitality of the planet. Now, a mother, a wife, a sister, writer, performer and producer, Uraine shares her process and journey through life and how she came to create the character of Nana Magic.
