A Mile in My Shoes


Take a moment to see the world through another person's eyes.

To understand another person, try walking a mile in their shoes. This one-of-a-kind pop-up 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 had been experienced in London, Sao Paulo, New York, Riga, Denver, Perth and Melbourne. This new iteration, created by the Australian National Maritime Museum, celebrates the voices of migrants and refugees who have made this country their home - people who changed the face of the nation and have been changed by it.
