Emily Phillips Posted over 3 years ago How can creatives use new technologies to increase empathy across cultural and geographic distances? hi, sorry just saw the posting...so i'll make it quick, time is running out. what strikes me about the question is the word 'empathy' and i wonder, are you using it as an active or passive agent? 'inspire' leans towards more the 'active' use, but empathy, unfortunately, can often end up being a fleeting moment, a feeling, a 'ohhh' and then, it's gone. can i assume that in asking the question using the word 'empathy' you are also leaning towards the 'active' also regarding action, whether on a larger or more personal day to day level?
