Clare Patey, Empathy Museum ‘A Mile in My Shoes’

Clare shares her work at the Empathy Museum, the world’s first experiential arts space dedicated to helping us look at the world through other people’s eyes. A Mile in My Shoes is an interactive shoe shop where visitors can walk a mile in someone else’s shoes – literally. The exhibit holds a diverse collection of shoes and audio stories exploring our shared humanity. From a sewage worker to a sex worker, a war veteran to a prison psychiatrist, visitors can walk a mile in the shoes of a stranger whilst listening to their story.
