ASW's "Living Library" Project

Creating encounters of deep learning from a community of indigenous elders from Asia and from all over the world. The living Library is a platform for dialogue between generations and between indigenous communities and 'others'. Young people can reach out to them and learn, much like reading a book or watching a video. Elders love to tell their stories, if we care to be patient, ask and listen. It’s amazing what we can learn about the past, the present, and about our futures together.
