In this episode, Dr. Elif Gokcigdem, the founder of Empathy-Building Through Museums Initiative speaks with us about how empathy can be strengthened by museums and beyond. For her, empathy is not a buzzword, but rather a way of being.
Dr. Gokcigdem has a passion for helping people develop their empathy through art. In addition to the Empathy-Building Through Museums Initiative, she is the editor of two books: “Fostering Empathy Through Museums”, and “Designing for Empathy” and the chief curator/co-chair of the world’s first summit on empathy and museums with Dalai Lama.
