Empathy Museum: A Mile In My Shoes
The 2019 Biennial of the Americas Festival, in partnership with Riverfront Park Community Foundation, Random Acts of Kindness Foundation, and I Am Denver, will launch Empathy Museum’s “A Mile in My Shoes” exhibition on August 9 in Tail Tracks Plaza (on 16th Street between Wewatta Street and Wynkoop Street).
This traveling, one-of-a-kind, participatory exhibition allows participants to literally walk in someone else’s shoes while listening to a story about that person’s life. From a Syrian refugee sex worker, to a war veteran and neurosurgeon, the stories housed in this shoebox invite participants on a journey of empathy that explores our shared humanity and inspires deep, lasting mental impressions that persist well after the physical mile is traversed.
