A Mile In My Shoes

Claire Patey, Empathy Museum
Sun 17 - Sat 23 Dec 2023

To understand another person, try walking a mile in their shoes - literally. This pop-up shop allows you to do just that.

Visitors are invited to come into our shoe shop, try on a pair of shoes that belong to someone else and listen to their story. It might be a tale of loss and sadness, hope and love, or odds overcome. But whoever's shoes you walk in, A Mile in My Shoes will take you on an extraordinary journey into the life of a stranger.

'The intimate exposure to the details of another's life will stay with you long after you have returned their shoes to the box' – ★★★★ Arts Hub
