SHOES Project is a mobile shoes exhibit that is displayed at schools, youth organizations and community events. The shoes have been gifted as apart of our exhibit, by individuals who have ‘shoe stories’ & messages to share. Their stories are intended to inspire, bridge differences, raise spirits, change attitudes, induce thought, prompt action, initiate conversation, evoke empathy, and/or bring a smile.
The goal is that after learning about others through their shoe stories, an exhibit guest will discover something about him/herself that will create change in the way they see others or better yet, how they see themselves.
The exhibit is displayed in a museum like set-up so exhibit guest can get up close. They can use this time to ask find out about individuals from varied backgrounds.
SHOES Project completes the presentation with an activities for guest to take participate in to ensure that the targeted outcomes are achieved.
We are project to reach approximately 10,000 youth in the 2020-2021 academic year..
