The Shoe Project - Calgary

The Shoe Project - Calgary
The Shoe Project is a writing and performance workshop designed to help immigrant women improve their writing skills and public speaking. The workshop is coached by canadian author Katherine Govier among other writers and theatre artists. Participants write about their story of coming to Canada and the shoes that brought them here. The workshop ends with a fabulous performance night where each participant tells their story in front of an audience. 
I had the privilege of participating in the Shoe Project in 2014. I met a wonderful group of women and made several meaningful friendships. Since that time, I have had the opportunity to photograph many pairs of shoes from other Shoe Project sessions. The photos below are from the 2017 Calgary Shoe Project. You can read their stories here.
