ABOUT EVENT:
A balanced association is a healthy one. That's why the NYC chapter of the UxPA is holding a qualitative event called: The Empathy Workshop. Attending this event will strengthen your understanding of users because you could gain a new perspective. You can expect this event to be less about numbers and more about impressions and networking with your fellow attendees.

Our speaker - Rhode Island based Seung Chan Lim, a Digital Creative Professional for over 10 years - will be presenting some of the findings from his book called "Realizing Empathy: An Inquiry Into the Meaning of Making". He will elaborate on his notion that a creative process is essentially a process of realizing empathy.

He will take us through a demonstration of how he came to this conclusion by starting with a definition of empathy, and then move toward examples of how to realize it. Seung Chan Lim has been sharing his findings all up and down the Eastern Sea Board, and we are honored to have him while he's in town.

ABOUT SEUNG CHAN:
Seung Chan – also known as Slim – is a Computer Scientist and Manager by training, Designer by trade and, he says, “Performer by birth.”

Just to give you an idea of his varied and creative background and current interests, prior to embarking on the Realizing Empathy project, Slim served as the Assistant Director of Engineering and Senior Software Design Engineer at MAYA Design, and was also an independent DJ, Music Producer and Performance Director by night. Slim says that when he’s not fighting for the right to empathize and to be empathized, he is acting, directing, dancing, composing, programming, or woodworking.
