What is

Project Empathy?

Project Empathy is a performance-based project in which people are tasked with telling each other’s true, personal stories.


For 6-8 weeks, the cast engages in empathy exercises, reflective writing, and perspective-taking to build trust and understanding. The connective experience culminates in a performance of stories for an audience.

Created by Catherine Cote in 2017 in Melbourne, Australia, the Project can be performed with any even number of people up to twelve.
