I came across this very inspiring talk by Raghava KK, a young artist from India. He made a childrens book for the iPad and demonstrates in this short and funny talk how he uses perspectives to teach children creativity and empathy.
Raghava KK argues that art and creativity are very essential tools in empathy. It reminds me of an interview I read last year with the japanese writer Haruki Murakami when he visited Oslo. He said: "I fight fundamentalism with creativity".
The ability to imagine other realities and the possibility of shifting ones perspective is essentially what can open up to seing the world with more nuances and having access to more possibilities.
