Walk a Mile in My Shoes

Come and take part in a unique and free event taking place in Clonmel on Friday, September 22nd from 2-4pm as part of Culture Night 2017. Walk a mile in my shoes is an actual 1-mile community walk from Jervis Place in Clonmel to the Limerick Institute of Technology Clonmel Campus on the bypass.

Along the way, there will be installations of shoes at various points. Everyone is welcome to take part. You can get involved by donating and decorating a pair of shoes which symbolizes you or represents someone you know/used to know. The outside of the shoe represents what we show to the world whilst the inside shows what we keep hidden. You don’t have to donate shoes to take part and can get involved by joining us on the walk at 2pm.

The event is in conjunction with Cuan Saor who do great work in the area of domestic violence in Clonmel and they will give a short talk at the end of the walk followed by refreshments and music. Whilst the walk is taking place in Clonmel, another walk will also be taking place in Carrick on Suir via the Tudor Artisan Hub on the same day and time. This event is funded by Tipperary County Council.

If you would like more information please contact Marie at mariea.walsh@lit.ie for Clonmel and Linda at tudorartisanhub@gmail.com for the walk in Carrick On Suir.

The idea behind the project is to promote the fact that we are all so very different and that we can only get glimpses of others – what you see on the outside. It is said that if you want to know me then you need to walk a mile in my shoes.
