Mile in my Shoes


What’s 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? Empathy Museum invites you to take a moment to look at the world through someone else’s eyes. 

Established in 2015 by artist Clare Patey, the museum explores how empathy can not only transform our personal relationships but also help tackle global challenges such as prejudice, conflict and inequality. 

A Mile in My Shoes is Empathy Museum’s travelling interactive shoe shop, where you can walk a mile in someone else’s shoes – literally – while listening to them tell a story about their life. With a diverse collection of over 250 shoes and stories collected from around the world, A Mile in My Shoes invites you on an empathic and physical journey
