The Shoe Project The Shoe Project is a non-profit that holds writing and performing workshops for immigrant and refugee women. Workshop participants improve their English language fluency and public speaking skills by writing a story about their journeys to Canada through the lens of a pair of shoes. To help newcomer women present their stories in a public performance, veteran writers mentor their art of story crafting and theatrical artists provide voice coaching.

This program will be done through Zoom, a free videoconferencing software for tablets, smartphones and computers. Access instructions will be sent to those who register.
