Empathy Museum is dedicated to helping us look at the world through other people’s eyes. With a focus on storytelling and dialogue, its participatory arts projects explore how empathy can transform our personal relationships and tackle global challenges such as prejudice, conflict and inequality.
Their project – A Mile In My Shoes – is a travelling shoe shop that invites visitors to (literally) walk a mile in a stranger’s shoes while listening to their story. Pop in while you’re at Being the Story and step into the life of someone you may never have come across – from a farmer to a sex worker to a neurosurgeon, war veteran or refugee.
