In Their Shoes: Empathy Workshop
- 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
In March 2021, we officially launched the In Their Shoes project: an online simulation game geared towards building empathy as a young person, followed by a workshop discussion. Since then, we’ve amassed hundreds of plays and received overwhelmingly positive feedback.
- “Thanks a lot for introducing this game, learnt a lot and really extremely useful in helping us to see things from others’ perspective and develop greater empathy!”
- “Really wonderful games[…] does bring out the complexities present in society.”
We’d love to continue sharing this project with you and are holding another empathy workshop for youth/under-35s on 20 May 2021 (16.00-17.30 SGT).
We’ll be running the Youth game which addresses the topics of mental health, learning difficulties and low-income backgrounds. You’ll get to choose a character, face challenging situations, and contribute to this project while developing your own skills in the workshop discussion.
We look forward to seeing you there!
