If you could ask one question to all of your neighbors, what would you ask?
Great thread. One thing that fascinates me in this discussion about community connectedness is the role media/technology plays in contributing to 'empathy fatigue'. We are connected to so many more people today that it becomes psychologically fraught to continually extend our empathy to those beyond the social/familial tribes our human minds were designed to love and care for. I'm exploring this notion in a participatory arts project called Walk the Talk where I invite people to a public park in Melbourne (AUS) and ask them to pair up with a stranger and go on an en mass self-directed stroll for an hour. We'll see how it goes! P
