Playground of Empathy's, Walk in My Shoes Closet is an immersive, multimedia pop-up experience that enables the visitor to see the world through the perspective of someone of a different gender by existing as and engaging directly with this other gender identity.
Each thirty minute experience draws on a narrative account given by a real person, allowing participants to enter into a viscerally empathic relationship with a gender experience different than their own. This occurs through putting on or touching clothing and accessories of symbolic meaning, innovative, interactive POV videos reenacting gender-related memories, and reflective questions engaging in-experience dialogue.
This experience is FREE, but you must reserve a time slot to participate. The experience is designed for one person at a time.
