A Mile In My Shoes, Inc. (AMIMS) is a nonprofit arts organization founded in 2005 by composer, lyricist, and playwright Germono Toussaint. The mission is to use the arts as a platform to address a diverse array of modern social issues, increasing the awareness of the societal impact of these issues. By creating events focused on these issues, audiences are motivated to action.
We believe using the arts is an effective and progressive way to raise awareness and promote understanding of the individuals engaged in the issues we present. We also desire to put a face to the issues and introduce them to an audience who would not generally be engaged.
We will create a series of concerts, theatre productions, films, talks, and forums, each addressing a modern social issue. At select concert performances and theatre productions we will introduce our audience to organizations that deal directly with the issues we present and provide them with information and opportunities to get involved.
