* A Mile in My Shoes *
Arts Centre Melbourne presents A Mile in My Shoes by Empathy Museum 1 - 17 November 2019 | Forecourt, Arts Centre Melbourne FREE Take a walk in someone else's shoes - literally. A free pop-up storytelling exhibition at the Arts Centre Melbourne. Housed in a giant shoebox, A Mile in My Shoes is a shoe shop where visitors can experience the world from a stranger's perspective. Step inside, swap your shoes, slip on some headphones and take a walk as the shoes' owner shares their story with you. Melbourne's exhibit will feature a collection of 35 shoes and audio stories based on the theme of water. Discover tales from all walks of life - an 81-year-old rower, a marine biologist, a Vietnam War veteran and even an English migrant with a fear of water. Created by London-based artist Clare Patey of Empathy Museum, this work explores how empathy can not only transform our personal relationships but also help tackle global challenges such as prejudice, conflict and inequality. From England to Brazil, A Mile in My Shoes has travelled all around the world. Now it's Melbourne's turn to see the world through someone else's eyes. The project is presented by Arts Centre Melbourne as part of its Betty Amsden Participation Program, an annual community event series established by the late Betty Amsden AO and Arts Centre Melbourne to inspire and engage with all Victorians. Performance dates & times Sunday to Wednesday 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM Thursday to Saturday 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM Audio Description available: Wednesday 6 Nov 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM Saturday 9 Nov 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM Running Time Each audio story ranges from 5 - 15 minutes. We recommend allowing up to 30 minutes for this experience.
