Event description

Description

Jane’s Walk is a weekend of free neighbourhood walking tours held in cities around the world each May. Jane’s Walks are walking conversations about neighbourhoods and what matters to the people who live, work and play there. Anyone can volunteer to lead a Jane’s Walk, to offer their insider’s view of a neighbourhood and to invite people into conversation.

2017 saw 82 different free tours on topics as diverse as the human health benefits of walking our dogs, how new suburbs can build their sense of identity, the main street urban design framework and the murals of Chinatown.

Join us on November 14th to discuss how the Jane's Walk concept can be expanded to build community throughout the year.

This free workshop is of interest to first-time and experienced Jane's Walk leaders. It is ideal for community associations, recreation and cultural groups, schools, artists, and anyone interested in community, participation, and neighbourhood life. A light supper will be served prior to the event at 6:30pm.

Jane's Walk Calgary is a program of the Calgary Foundation.
