Ten women originally coming from Nigeria, United Arab Emirates, China, Nepal, Sudan, and Ukraine will share their stories of immigration and adaptation to Canada – through the focus of a pair of shoes. The Shoe Project helps newcomer women improve their language and communication skills by providing writing and public speaking workshops. Our program starts with a 10-week writing seminar. A writing mentor leads the weekly writing sessions to help 12 participants each discover and craft a story about their journey to Canada. The personal memoir uses a pair of shoes as focus. Then, each participant starts one-on-one performance coaching sessions with a theatre professional. In the end, the newcomer women performers will present their stories on stage at a theatre venue in front of a public audience. The experience of sharing these deeply personal stories is empowering and, for those who are there to hear, profound. Founded in 2011, The Shoe Project now has workshops in 10 cities across Canada and has worked with over 250 newcomer women originally coming from 62 countries and regions.
