The Shoe Project returns with an evening of stories from the Bow Valley’s immigrant and refugee women.
"Shoes accompany us on all our journeys. They say who we are, where we came from and where we are going.” – The Shoe Project founder, Katherine Govier
The Shoe Project returns to artsPlace and the Whyte Museum with more evenings of stories from the Bow Valley’s immigrant women. The Shoe Project is a writing and performance workshop for immigrant women who tell the stories of their journeys to Canada, through a pair of shoes. Writing their shoe memoirs while being mentored by Canadian writers and voice coaches gives participants a voice and helps them be heard in their communities, and in the Canadian mainstream. Join them for this very personal performance.
