Are you a refugee or immigrant woman and a newcomer to Edmonton?

Join The Shoe Project, a free program to empower women by sharing their stories of coming to Canada. You can collaborate with theatre professionals to write your story based on a pair of shoes. Once completed, the stories will be presented at a public performance during the SkirtsAfire Festival in March 2024.
