To Walk In Your Shoes


In 2013 Rachael Munro-Fawcett and Redbobble Arts joined together to form a unique collaboration featuring a documentary photography exhibition and piece of verbatim theatre exploring the topic of what it means to seek asylum. With constant negative reports in the press surrounding the topic of immigration, To Walk In Your Shoes focuses on the strength and resilience of the human spirit and challenges the myths and untruths perpetuated by the media. 


Partnering with relevant charities including including City of Sanctuary and PAFRAS they visited drop ins, community groups and temporary housing to gather research and stories from Syria, Iran, Pakistan, Somalia and Eritrea, recounting peoples experiences of living in the UK. The exhibition and show toured to audiences across the country and was shown at The Lowry Salford, Amnesty International Wakefield, Hope Mill Theatre Manchester,  Seven Arts Leeds, RNCM, Theatre Deli Sheffield and New Vic Theatre Stoke. Funded by Arts Council England.
