What they're saying:

"I’m 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

The Shoe Project

Walk a mile in their shoes. A delightful and enlightening journey of immigration and hope.

The Shoe Project is a writing and performance workshop where immigrant women tell the stories of their arrival in Canada — through a pair of shoes. They are coached by veteran Canadian writers and theatre professionals.

Shoes accompany us on all our journeys. They say who we are, where we came from and where we are going. Writing their shoe memoirs gives members a voice and helps them be heard in the Canadian mainstream. These powerful stories are bridges carrying us all to deeper understanding.

Now in its fifth year, The Shoe Project was created by novelist Katherine Govier and incubated at the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto. The Calgary workshops and performance of The Shoe Project are sponsored by the three Govier sisters — Trudy, Katherine and Sue — in honour of their mother Doris.
