A Mile in My Shoes is a shoe shop where visitors are invited to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes – literally. Housed in a giant shoebox, in this case, the White Cuib gallery, this roaming exhibit holds a diverse collection of shoes and audio stories that explore our shared humanity. From a Syrian refugee to a sex worker, a war veteran to a neurosurgeon, visitors are invited to walk a mile in the shoes of a stranger while listening to their story. The stories cover different aspects of life, from loss and grief to hope and love and take the visitor on an empathetic as well as a physical journey.
