|Meet You at the 'Empathy Museum'!
By: Doug Bedell
Wish we could be in London tomorrow. That’s when the Empathy Museum is opening, and, boy, do we need a focus on empathy around the world. Empathy, of course, is understanding, and reacting helpfully to, the situation of another – walking in his or her shoes.
At the Empathy Museum, they’ll be doing just that. “The opening is part of the Totally Thames Festival, featuring the installation ‘A mile in My Shoes’. The event, created in collaboration with the residents of Wandsworth in south London, will take place on the banks of the Thames, where passersby will be asked to choose a pair of stranger’s shoes and walk along the river, listening to the owner’s story on headphones…”
What a neat, pertinent to our relationally strained times, idea!
