The Shoe Project

Shoes accompany us on all our journeys. They say who we are, where we came from, and where we are going.

The Shoe Project is a writing and performance workshop where immigrant women tell the stories of their journeys in Canada. Immigrant women are coached by veteran Canadian writers and theatre professionals. Writing and performing their shoe memoirs allows members to be heard in the Canadian mainstream. These powerful stories are bridges carrying us all to deeper understanding.

Now in its sixth year, The Shoe Project was created by novelist Katherine Govier and incubated at the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto.

“I’ve been blown away. Those women are amazing, their stories bold and brave and filled with humour, love, and all the travails of making their journeys here. I loved the various shoes, the boots, the “slippers”. What an outstanding project!” — Catherine Mitchell, publisher
