Part shoe-shop, part audio-portrait, A Mile in My Shoes is the exciting debut event for The Empathy Museum, created in collaboration with people that live and work on the banks of the Thames.

A unique audio portrait of the riverside in Wandsworth, created with local residents and members of the community and presented as an interactive shoe shop. Visitors will have the opportunity to literally walk in someone else’s shoes, whilst being immersed in a narrative of their life.

Co-commissioned by Thames Festival Trust, A Mile in My Shoes is the first outing of a two-year, multi-location participatory project developed by artist/producer team Clare Patey and Kitty Ross with cultural thinker Roman Krznaric that will lead to the creation of The Empathy Museum.
