a mile in my shoes – migration, london
We are looking for people with a story to tell. We are looking for new stories for a version of A Mile in My Shoes, which will be on at The Migration Museum in Lambeth in October 2017. We are looking for people who have moved to London from another country in the past 60 years and who are happy to be recorded talking about an aspect of their life. It can be about any part of your story and you’ll be working with a highly experienced audio producer who can help you. The recording can take place in your home or somewhere else convenient for you; it will take up to 3 hours. We ask each story-teller to donate a pair of shoes, that someone can walk in while listening to your story. Your story will form part of a growing exhibition, which will tour internationally. Please get in touch with project manager Tiphaine to find out more.
We are collaborating on a long-term project with The Health Foundation to create a unique version of A Mile in My Shoes to highlight the experiences of people working in a range of roles in health and social care across the UK. We launched this at the NHS Confederation Conference last year and have shown it at Expo, the RSA and in the Houses of Parliament. You can listen to the stories on the Health Foundation’s A Mile in My Shoes digital platform here. We will continue to tour the A Mile in My Shoes Health and Social Care throughout 2017.
