After announcing the Empathy Workshop plans yesterday, we received a very nice note from Wyndel Hill, the Vice President of Internal Relations for The Zoo. Mr. Hill explained The Zoo's policy with respect to "public expressive activity" being prohibited on Zoo grounds "because these activities interfere with the zoo visitor experience." The policy makes sense. My client was extremely empathetic to the potential for interfering with the "zoo visitor experience" and elected to cancel what was expected to be a very lightly attended workshop. Perhaps the exercise proved to be the workshop itself?
