DFA – Brown University: The Empathy Box – http://empathybox.org


The Empathy Box brings the power of guerilla storytelling to children on the autism spectrum, their families, and their supporters. Guerilla storytelling is a way to get stories to people who wouldn’t otherwise hear them – in this project’s case, a way to get the vibrant and colorful stories of spectrum families to their neighbors, relatives, and friends who remain otherwise unaware.

We believe that sharing stories builds empathy, a quality so often hindered by the gulf of misunderstanding between the spectrum community and their uninvolved communities
