Walk In My Shoes

If someone said "tell me about your life" what would you say? 

Walk In My Shoes is part of Here & Now, a national project supported by Arts Council England and Future Arts Centres, marking The National Lottery’s 25th birthday. Running in arts centres across the UK, Here & Now aims to create new conversations and understanding between different groups of people.

Our Here & Now project is called Walk In My Shoes. The project will be bringing younger and older people together to step across the generations and into each other's lives. 

Participants from both generations will work with a team of professional artists from local charity Hoot Creative Arts, and will use story-telling, writing and drama to create new stories and dramatic scenes responding to the statement “Let me tell you about me...” This will all be captured in a film which will then be premiered at the Lawrence Batley Theatre in September.

Registration to take part in Walk In My Shoes is now closed. If you have any questions about the project please email our Head of Participation, Jenny Goodman -
