    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Contemporary theories of social cohesion emphasize the&amp;nbsp;importance of people accepting and appreciating differences across&lt;br&gt;
social groups. The SPICE project aims to promote social cohesion&amp;nbsp;by researching and developing tools and methods to support citizen&amp;nbsp;curation for groups at risk of exclusion. We define citizen curation&amp;nbsp;as a process in which citizens can interpret cultural objects in order&amp;nbsp;to build representations of their own social group. Other groups can&amp;nbsp;then engage with those interpretations in order to appreciate their&amp;nbsp;perspective. In this position paper we discuss how research into&amp;nbsp;empathy can be used to motivate the design of recommender&amp;nbsp;systems that support people in looking beyond their own group and&amp;nbsp;engaging constructively with alternative perspectives.&lt;br&gt;
