Presented by Cypher and hosted by BON.
What role does empathy play in the every day lives of a doctor, an actor, and a designer?  These three disciplines will be explored to better understand the concept and how each person applies it in their respective fields. Using empathy as common ground, Experiencing Empathy seeks to shed light on the importance of medicine, acting and design both learning from and benefiting one another.
