Empathy Archive is a video project where two people have an in-depth discussion about something they both experienced. 

These are the conversations scheduled for June 2018:
- two people over 70 will be discussing a poem by Dylan Thomas " Do not go gentle into that good night" and facing the ending of the life

Below are the topics where I have one person who wants to talk about it and I am looking for a pair. Any subject can be brought up for the discussion. If you want to participate in the conversation already proposed or if you'd like to open a new topic, please contact me.
