SOLD OUT: Virtual Empathy Lab: Setting the Conditions for Empathy
This event takes place from 10 to 11:30AM CST on May 12.
Join Mia for an experimental program exploring the art and science of empathy. After a thought-provoking conversation with experts to spark a critical dialogue, participants will engage in individual and group activities to put these ideas into practice. As we take a closer look at art works in Mia’s collection that surface these themes, the speakers will ask us to consider: How is empathy wired in our brains, and what are the conditions that need to exist for us to become more empathic individuals?
