Collected in partnership with Perth Festival and The Empathy Museum, A Mile in My Shoes is an extraordinary collection of stories that give us a glimpse into the lives of Western Australians from all walks of life.

Gina Williams has always felt an urge to assert her Aboriginality and has used her music as both a healing process and a vehicle to tell her story. “All I ever wanted was to belong to a family. I’m firmly committed to rewriting the script. This language is not just an Australian history, it’s an Indigenous history; but there’s enough space for everybody. Developing connections to land and each other is powerful.”
