In their own words:
“What is Empathy Week? Empathy Week is a seven-day festival of events which promote empathy, human connection, and the recognition of our shared humanity. Empathy Week is curated by Humainologie and is a community initiative with numerous Calgary partner organizations and individuals coming together to host a variety of events.”
“Humainologie uses art, including film, to spread empathy, increase inclusion, and reduce discrimination. We focus on promoting empathy to create more inclusive people and communities; creating self-awareness to address barriers to human connection; and sharing the stories and experiences of marginalized or misrepresented people in order to build understanding and reduce discrimination.”
