About

Cultural thinker and founder of The Empathy Museum, Roman Krznaric has been named by the Observer as one of Britain’s leading popular philosophers. An internationally recognised expert on empathy, he advises organisations, as well as Britain’s top judges, on using empathy and conversation to create social change.

His book Empathy has been widely influential among political and ecological campaigners, education reformers, social entrepreneurs, and designers. In it he proposes empathy has the power both to transform our own lives and to bring about fundamental social change. 

Join us for an illuminating opening of the 2016 Perth Writers Festival.

Perth Writers Festival opening party commences 8.15pm.
