Inclusive Public Spaces | Book List

The Reykjavik City Library explored what inclusive public spaces are and could be. With writers, poets, artists and activists we engaged in a creative dialogue on belonging, visibility and inclusion. The Library invited participants to think tank sessions to discuss these questions, share related stories from every-day life and seek a mutual understanding. 

One of the many outcomes of this project is a purchase book list recommendation which recently enriched the shelves of the Reykjavik City Library. A collection of readings was also made on the e-Library on identity formations and colored societies under the name Voices. This list was developed with the contributors to our project Inclusive Public Spaces: Anna Wojtyńska, Chanel Björk Sturludóttir, Daría Sól Andrews, Elías Knörr, Ewa Marcinek, Helen Cova, Melanie Ubaldo, Nermine El Ansari and Wiola Ujazdowska.

We hope those books will inspire you to learn more about structural racism, power structures, privilege and prejudice.

We encourage you to give our publication a read and give our podcasts a listen as well!
