什麼是滾動的書

Rolling,閱讀的永恆體驗,滾動中⋯⋯

Rolling Books是推廣閱讀體驗的社會企業 。我們透過靈活貼地的流動概念書車,將閱讀推廣的有趣點子,駛進小學校園及關愛社區,希望將閱讀的樂趣化成真摰的體驗,讓小朋友自發投入閱讀的世界。我們也透過與其他各類機構合作,擴大閱讀推廣的影響力,重新建造閱讀體驗的新形態;我們亦會嘗試其他的創新項目實驗,推廣可持續發展知識。

感謝No Pasa Nada對Rolling Books進行了深度訪談,對Rolling Books的面貌進行了全方位多角度的呈現。

Rolling Books如何從以閱讀為載體的創新實驗中孵化? 我們何以與閱讀相關,又不僅僅只與閱讀相關? 我們因何走上社會創新的路途? 我們希望透過閱讀為基層及少數族裔孩童帶來怎樣的幫助? 我們在疫情中又有怎樣的思考及應對措施?在未來,Rolling Books又將如何迎接新的挑戰,帶來怎樣的閱讀新趨勢呢?

Rolling Books誠邀大家與我們及No Pasa Nada一起回顧滾動路途上的點滴,一同展望未來,期待更多更有能量的滾動。

Rolling Books在No Pasa Nada的詳細訪談紀錄(十篇):

Rolling Books is a social enterprise based in Hong Kong that aims to promote the reading experience. They simultaneously work with social issues including poverty alleviation of minority groups, marine pollution, and women’s empowerment. 

James ran a bookstore 15 years ago, when it was not common in Hong Kong to have social activities within bookstores.

After leaving his bookstore, James never left reading aside. He organized running book clubs in which members would run together, and then read.

The NGO and the social enterprise work differently in terms of their business model. James chose the social enterprise and discusses Rolling Books’ income sources.

Within NGOs, it may be difficult to choose a picture book if they want to convey specific agendas. As a social enterprise, Rolling Books doesn’t face this limitation.

Reading in Hong Kong is not often thought as particularly social. James aims to make reading a trendy expereince.

Ethnic minorities children are susceptible to intergenerational poverty in Hong Kong, because the education system prioritzes Chinese [Cantonese].

Among low-income families, parents have less time with their children and children are more likely to be exposed to the digital world.

During the break from reading activities, Rolling Books has been spending more time with the ethnic minority families and have identified other needs the families may have.

Protests that began since last June in 2019 have changed the dynamics of storytelling. As a father himself, James must also think about these issues for his son.
