Fostering Empathy With the Arts



Panelists:

   Lynn Johnson
   

Lynn Johnson is CEO of Glitter & Razz Productions and theater artist dedicated to building strong connections with creative & compassionate people to bring about positive social change.

 

Using the expressive arts and theater to promote and teach empathy to children and adults. We believe that play lights us up and connects us. We believe that compassion is a skill that can be taught and practiced. 

       
   Seung Chan Lim
    Seung Chan Lim, better known as Slim, is the director for project Realizing Empathy. Realizing Empathy is a project that asks what it means to make something, how it works as a process, and why it matters to our lives. It explores these questions across disciplines such as fine arts, performing arts, design, science, and engineering.
       
  Joan Kuenz
    My passion in education started many years ago when I returned to school, earning a 7-12th grade teaching credential in health and science, and a graduate degree in special education. Being a life long student, as many teachers are, to keep my in-state, and out-of- state, credential updated, my path lead me to taking courses in a major area of interest, the arts. My feeling is all the arts whether, visual, dance, music, theater, film, poetry and writing need to be an integral part of all education, as well as values.
       
   Tal-Chen Rabinowitch
    Tal-Chen is working in Cambridge towards a PhD. Her research explores the social nature of musical group interaction in children and the ways in which it can be directed towards the long-term enhancement of emotional empathy. This work explores experimentally the effects of musical group interaction on children’s every day capacity for empathy, and in particular, the emotional impact of synchronization during musical interaction. Her research suggests that music promotes empathy.
