AN ACT OF EMPATHY: UNDERSTANDING THE INJURED BRAIN
“In My Shoes” gives participants license to step into the shoes of strangers and experience the world from that very different perspective.
Initially developed to facilitate communication between patients with traumatic brain injuries and those who support them, it is a tool to challenge preconceptions and facilitate understanding.
The series uses touch, taste, smell, audio-visual technology, and first-person documentary to recreate real-life experiences and enable participants to use what they learn to inform communications and care.
Speakers: Jane Gauntlett is an artist and theater producer and founder of Sublime & Ridiculous.
