OUR MISSION

Project Empathy's mission is to foster

empathy, trust, and understanding across difference.

For directors,

we provide the tools, frameworks, and support necessary to lead positive change in your communities.

For cast members,

we provide the opportunity to be deeply understood by someone different from you, while simultaneously pushing you out of your comfort zone to understand them.

For audience members,

we provide the chance to witness the personal stories of members of your community, and the invitation to expand your perspective.

For broader communities,

we provide the ripple effect of directors, cast members, and audience members living their lives with empathy in mind, and the knowledge that your community members care about connecting across difference.
