Stofan | Freaks or Fantastic Role Models? 

Tuesday May 14th 2024

Do you remember a film, TV show, book or lyrics featuring a protagonist with disabilities? Tell us about it - how did it make you feel? Did you see a role model or mainly a portrait of someone seen as "abnormal"?  

The ÖBÍ - Icelandic Disability Alliance collects examples of the manifestations of disability in pop culture at the Reykjavík City Library from 14th until 22nd of May. Share your ideas with us on location. You can also share your thoughts with us online on the bottom of this webpage here.

The space closes with an open mic event where you can share your ideas on the topic on the 22nd of May at 5 pm in the library location in Grófin. 

Opening and discussions - 14th of May at 5 pm
Open Mic - 22th of May at 5 pm

This temporary space is a part of the project Stofan | Public Living Room. It is an experimental project where the library works with different partners on placemaking at the library. Each month a collaborator creates a new temporary place that reflects specific social needs.  This is a process where we temporarily transform a space into a place for meaningful interactions. The theme of Stofan 2023-2024 is Share the Care
