Voices to remember: The X Page Storytelling Workshop

A glance of the X Page Writing Workshop

On Sunday, July 24, 10 refugee and immigrant women from the Waterloo Region performed their personal narratives in front of family, friends, and community members in the Chapel at Conrad Grebel University College. By developing their writing and performance skills throughout a 12-week workshop facilitated by local, professional artists, these women were given the opportunity to showcase their narratives in front of a live audience. This year’s performance, “Voices,” was the first in-person X Page performance in more than two years. Witnessing such collaboration, compassion, and diversity was inspiring, aligning with the Centre’s mission and values.

Who's who: Students at the Centre this spring

Students of the CPA


As COVID restrictions have lifted, the Kindred Credit Union Centre for Peace Advancement has become a livelier place with old faces returning and new ones joining. Among them are a number of students hired for co-op, internship, and volunteer positions by the Centre for Peace Advancement and its participants, particularly The Ripple Effect Education (TREE), Project Ploughshares, and ESGTree. In the previous academic year, 27 students had the opportunity to be apart of our community, and a total of 161 students have been hired by the Centre for Peace Advancement and its participants since 2014. The Centre is a collaborative space with eleven participant organizations, where connection, professional and informal, comes easily. This interdisciplinary community that emphasizes peace exposes students to diverse ways of thinking and real examples of community change. These placements provide students with the professional skills needed to excel in the workforce, mentorship by reputable academics and professionals, and exposure to the expansive and exciting field of peacebuilding.
