What is Empathy?

Somehow in amongst this, we all seem to have forgotten a simple tool that would all make our lives so much easier: Empathy.

In The Empathy Project, writer and activist Honey Ross, photographer Chloe Sheppard and filmmaker Eros Vlahos interview a cross-section of London youth to explore what empathy means to them, and how their own experiences have shaped their world view.

Honey Ross is a body-positive activist, screenwriter, producer and co-founder of feminist activist collective The Pink Protest. In 2018 she produced the award-winning Channel 4 short film “Right Place, Wrong Tim” starring Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, and Adam Buxton.
