The X Page: A Storytelling Workshop is an interdisciplinary community arts project that connects women who are immigrants or refugees with artists in Waterloo Region, who assist and mentor them in writing and performing their own stories.
The X Page performance in the spring of 2019 featured music, movement, staged scenes, and the compelling personal stories of nineteen women, told in their own voices.
The women’s stories were also published online by The New Quarterly literary magazine and can be found by clicking here.
Workshop sessions focused on writing and performing, but as importantly, everyone involved shared laughter, friendship, and a strong sense of community and purpose. There were also great snacks!
