Empathy Museum

Clare Patey

What's 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 look at the world through someone else's eyes.

Curated by artist Clare Patey, the Empathy Museum presents a series of travelling, participatory experiences focused on storytelling and dialogue. The museum is currently touring 'A Mile in My Shoes', an interactive shoe shop where you can literally walk a mile in the shoes of a stranger while listening to a story about their life. Other projects include 'A Thousand and One Books', a crowd-sourced library for armchair travel into other lives and times, and 'Human Library', where instead of borrowing a book, visitors borrow a person – a Living Book – for an afternoon of conversation.
