The Empathy Co-op presents a free, participatory art installation that people can experience in both downtown Reno and online through the Burning Man Multiverse.
The art installation has been designed to create emotional closeness while still adhering to COVID-19 physical distancing requirements. The project enables visitors to engage and connect to a deeper, intrinsic understanding of empathy, self-awareness, and belonging within communities.
Three Elements to Explore
At the art installation, people will be guided through three experiences, Wild, Truth and Illuminated. This exploration is meant to help one gain clarity around one’s desires, purpose, and explore skills that contribute to a happy, meaningful life.
An Experience Appropriate for Today’s Environment
The art installation has been designed to create emotional closeness while still adhering to COVID-19 physical distancing requirements. The Empathy Co-op art experience, created by Sharon DeMattia and Thomas Kohler, uses curiosity, art, and play as tools to foster empathy.
The Empathy Co-op will be located in the City Plaza downtown Reno from August 30 to September 6. Simultaneously, the Empathy Co-op will launch in the Burning Man Multiverse, inviting global participation.
