“Practical Empathy is not about the kind of empathy where you feel the same emotions as another person. It’s about understanding how another person thinks—what’s going on inside her head and heart. And most importantly, it’s about acknowledging her reasoning and emotions as valid, even if they differ from your own understanding. This acknowledgment has all sorts of practical applications, especially in your work. This book explores using empathy in your work, both in the way you make things and the way you interact with people.”

Indi’s book focuses on cognitive empathy, which offers a huge and hugely practical payoff to anyone involved in just about any aspect of design.

Want a glimpse of the storytelling style of our speaker, Glynn Washington, set to go off this Friday? Prepare to be delighted…

This month we bring Glynn Washington, the electric host & executive producer of Snap Judgment to talk about CLIMATE. 

Before creating the Snap Judgment radio show, Glynn worked as an educator, diplomat, community activist, actor, political strategist, fist-shaker, mountain-hollerer, and foot stomper.

Glynn composed music for the Kunst Stoff dance performances in San Francisco, rocked live spoken word poetry in Detroit, joined a band in Indonesia, wrote several screenplays, painted a daring series of self portraits, released a blues album, and thinks his stories are best served with cocktails.

We are artists that choose to side with artists for the responsibility of art, society and to restore balance between gallery and creative. We set our role to declare we stand guard on behalf of artists. We are thee whom live for art.”
