HOW TO BE KIND
About How to Be Kind
How can you contribute to building a caring and inclusive society without exercising compassion for yourself? Spoiler alert: you can’t. In this interactive discussion, join the team behind hello empathy, a conversation card game to deepen awareness and understanding of individuals on the autism spectrum, and civic centre and consultancy Common Ground as they introduce simple steps you can take to exercise empathy for yourself and the communities you seek to support.
To learn more about the projects, visit the Good Design Research pop-up exhibition – A Day in the Life at Bugis+.
How To Be Kind is a Community Event of SDW 2022.
