Richland Library Introduces My Life Experience Empathy Lab

Columbia, SC– To mark National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, Richland Library is asking the community to spend a few moments in the life of someone who can no longer afford a home. We are launching the My Life Experience Empathy Lab this November, which uses virtual technology and simulation tools to see things from a new perspective.
In this immersive experience from Stanford University’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab, discover what it’s like to be homeless. Interact with the surrounding environment to save your home, your belongings and yourself. The lab reveals the adversity of living with diminishing resources.
The My Life Experience Empathy Lab is free and open to the public. It’s tailored toward an adult audience. The lab is traveling across our library system as follows:

In the coming months, the My Life Experience Empathy Lab also plans to focus on the issues of criminal justice, disability, sexual assault and refugees.Please visit richlandlibrary.com for more details along with a time frame.

The My Life Experience Empathy Lab is made possible thanks to funding from the Central Carolina Community Foundation and Tides Foundation.
