Islands of Empathy (in a sea of chaos)
In Islands of Empathy, we explore how empathy can be a driving force in the way we live together. In the Netherlands we grow up learning to always be the best version of ourselves; individually and and above all independently. Need help? What’s wrong with you! We’ve turned into a society in which self-reliance is a recommendation and needing help a sign of weakness.
