At CBC’s Ideas, Katherine talks to Paul Kennedy about The Shoe Project. You can stream the program at http://www.cbc.ca/ideas/episodes/2012/02/27/in-their-shoes/.
Katherine writes about The Shoe Project:
The design of the webpages in this section is taken from the Bata Shoe Museum webpages designed by Nicole Cahill; all of the photos are by Suzanne McLean © 2012 Bata Shoe Museum, Toronto, Canada.
The Shoe Project is an ongoing writing workshop for women who are new to Canada, led by Katherine, and funded by a private sponsor.
We meet for eight weeks in spring and fall. We exchange stories of arrival, and the role shoes play in old and new lives. At the end of each
session we have either a 'Snapshot Exhibit' or a performance. We
are fortunate to be able to meet in the Bata Shoe Museum, and visit their storage under the guidance of Senior Curator Elizabeth Semmelhack.
These are the stories -and shoes- from Session 1 and Session 2. Bios of the writers follow the stories.
