An author friend of mine, Caroline Adderson, is involved in a cross-cultural writing project called The Shoe Project that helps new women immigrants tell their story of adapting to a new country, and helps those already in the country better understand what these women have been through.

How?  We empower women by teaching advanced English writing skills. We follow it with voice training and experience in public performance.

What?  The Shoe Project holds writing workshops, exhibits and performances in which immigrant women tell their stories of arrival in, and adaptation to, a Canadian community through the lens of a pair of shoes.
Who?  Senior Canadian novelists and theatre artists share their skills with newcomers.
Why shoes?  Shoes cross cultures and are rich with stories.
