‘Never judge a person until you have walked a mile in their shoes’
Part shoe-shop, part audio-portrait of a country, this giant shoebox holds a diverse collection of shoes and audio stories that explore our shared humanity, giving you an intimate insight into the lives of strangers.
From a Syrian refugee to a sex worker, a war veteran to a neuro surgeon, visitors are invited to walk in the shoes of a stranger whilst listening to their story. Love, loss, grief, hope and joy are all to be found here as we take you on an empathetic and physical journey.
