Empathy Museum

Clare Patey

What is it like to have been a prisoner of war? To be a sex worker, miner or refugee? Or to have rediscovered love in your eighties? The Empathy Museum invites you to take a moment to look at the world through someone else's eyes.

Curated by artist Clare Patey, the Empathy Museum presents A Mile in My Shoes, an interactive shoe shop where you can walk a mile in someone else's shoes - literally, and A Thousand And One Books, a new travelling crowd-sourced library, for armchair travel into other lives and times. A host of events, talks and workshops will accompany the installation.

Please bring a favourite book to donate to A Thousand And One Books and then follow its journey with other readers from Greenwich to Greenland.

This presentation of Empathy Museum is co-commissioned by LIFT and Artsadmin, with the support of NOW Gallery and Greenwich Peninsula. An Imagine 2020 (2.0) project, supported by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
