Behind a wall, on the ceiling, in a recess, a hiding place or perhaps in a corner? In each branch of the Gdansk City Gallery, a secret has been hidden somewhere. The three hiding places are full of objects, or secret signs, and each relates to the exhibition in which it is located! The search will be easier with a specially designed map.

The map will tell you how to get to each gallery, explain what the exhibition represents and where to find clues to the hiding places.

Join us for family fun. Maps in Polish, Ukrainian and English can be picked up at the Günter Grass Gallery in Gdansk on the European Night of Museums between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Every child who manages to find and describe the hidden secrets is invited to 4G to collect the inherent secret agent item!


THE HUMAN LIBRARY
Date: 14 May 2022, 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Place: 4G – ul. Szeroka 34/35, 36, 37

The Human Library is designed to reflect the diversity of the community in which it is organised. It is by being open about topics that are important and sometimes difficult for a place that the Human Library can effectively replace stereotypes with knowledge, experience and empathy towards excluded people. The most important values of the Human Library are openness, diversity and respect for human rights, which form the basis of the method.

The Human Library is a place with a special role for groups and individuals facing stereotypes, prejudice, discrimination and exclusion. They act as Human Books. The Human Library does not focus on one topic or one minority, but addresses discrimination in the widest possible context. Therefore, the Human Books come from very diverse backgrounds, have different social statuses, religions, occupations, skin colours, sexual orientations, material statuses, educations, abilities, ages, views, and appearances. They share a common goal: to promote human rights and acceptance of diversity through the exchange of experiences.

Human Books refer to their own experiences and want to learn about the experience of others in order to replace stereotypical thinking with knowledge. But the Human Library is not a place for self-promotion or storytelling. The Human Library is a space where, by asking questions and having a frank conversation, each person has the chance to learn about different perspectives and, consequently, to build social contact, trust and acceptance.

The Human Library is organised in cooperation with Fundacja Instytut Równowagi Społeczno-Ekonomicznej and Association for LGBT Tolerado as part of the Tri-city Pride Days.
