Andréa Buoro is speaking at the Museum Social Impact Summit:

The power of an empathy exhibit to address violence in schools in Brazil

In recent years, Brazil has seen a rise in violent attacks on schools, resulting in fatalities and resulting in fear and distrust among teachers and students. Intermuseus, as a partner of the Empathy Museum/UK, took the exhibition “A Mile in My Shoes” to schools. This interactive installation offers an empathetic journey, provoking visitors to see the world from someone else’s perspectives. The experience promotes a moment of introspection and complicity that stimulates discussions on empathy-related topics, emphasizing the importance of understanding diversity and respect for everyone. This contributes to creating a more inclusive and collaborative school environment, essential for addressing school violence.
