X-Page invites you to celebrate Peace Week. In the X-Page space, you will craft and share stories to celebrate our differences that make up the mosaic of the Canadian experience. It is the hope that sharing our stories will promote peace, understanding and acceptance.

The X-Page is a writing exercise. Their workshops use exercises based on Lynda Barry’s teaching and philosophy. It's the opposite of a blank page: it’s the space where we enter into an image using all of our senses.
