A Mile in My Shoes

When

Every day, 10pm to 4pm Wednesday 6 January to Sunday 31 January

To understand another person, try walking a mile in their shoes. This one-of-a-kind store, housed in a giant shoebox at the Australian National Maritime Museum allows you to do just that.

Visitors are invited to enter the store and try on a pair of shoes that belong to someone else and to listen to their story. It might be a tale of loss and sadness, hope and love, of odds overcome. But whoever's shoes you walk in, A Mile in My Shoes will take you to places you can't anticipate.

Created by artist Clare Patey and produced by Artsadmin, A Mile in My Shoes has been experienced in London, Sao Paulo, New York, Riga, Denver, Perth and Melbourne. This new iteration, created with the Australian National Maritime Museum, celebrates the voices of migrants and refugees who have made this country their home - people who have changed the face of the nation and have changed by it.

Important information: We are a COVID safe environment. To keep visitors, staff and volunteers as safe as possible we have made changes to how we operate. Including following social distancing guidelines and frequent routine cleaning is undertaken to ensure the highest standard of cleanliness and hygiene. Find out more.

This event received a City of Sydney grant or sponsorship.
