A Mile in my Shoes

National Theatre of Scotland and Empathy Museum (UK) present the international touring hit A Mile in My Shoes as part of Findhorn Bay Festival. Located at secret sites across Moray and housed in a giant shoebox, this exhibit holds a diverse collection of shoes and audio stories that explore our shared experience. Visitors will be invited to walk a mile in the shoes of a local young stranger whilst listening to their story.

Tickets for A Mile In My Shoes will be available on the door.


A Mile in My Shoe is part of National Theatre of Scotland’s Futureproof festival marking Scotland’s Year of Young People in 2018. A major radical new festival of international performing arts, created by young people working alongside renowned Scottish, British and international theatre practitioners.

Ten companies and artists specialising in daring new work will embed themselves in ten communities around the country, working with local groups of young people to co-create, design, develop and stage a piece of performance. Ten productions will then take place in cities and locations across Scotland as part of the Futureproof festival in September and October 2018.

To find out the secret location of the shoe box please go to the website to register your details.
