In My Shoes is a photography and storytelling exhibition created by alumni from Big Thought's youth development programs. All youth artists who worked on this exhibition were former participants in Creative Solutions, Artivism or DaVerse Lounge.
Group Artist Statement: "We reunited during winter break to record our personal stories and capture images that serve as entry points into our experiences. One of the most important skills that we practice in our programming is empathy, and throughout your engagement with this exhibition, we invite you to practice empathy with us by taking a walk in our shoes, trying to experience our perspectives, and building community through understanding. It is our hope that through increased understanding, we can move people to action around the issues that matter most to us."
