What is it like to have been a prisoner of war?

To be a sex worker, miner or refugee?

Or to have rediscovered love in your eighties?

A Mile in My Shoes is a collection of audio stories that explore how empathy can not only transform our personal relationships but also help tackle global challenges such as prejudice, conflict and inequality.

Pop-up shoe shop A Mile in My Shoes invites you to embark on a physical, emotional and imaginative journey. Come and walk a mile in someone else’s shoes – literally – while listening to their story.

Produced by Arts Admin.
