Jane's Walk 2017

Jane's Walk: Downtown Calgary

May 5 -7, 2017 marks the 10th anniversary of Jane's Walk festival in Calgary. In the past decade, over 250 volunteers have led over 200 distinct walks in 88 Calgary and nearby neighbourhoods. These citizen-led walking tours were inspired by urbanist and activist Jane Jacobs to get people to tell stories about their communities, explore their cities and connect with their neighbours.

While Jane's Walk's mission is to develop urban literacy and a community-based approach to city building, it's also about creating a space to share beyond just the physical space. For many, the observations, reflections, imaginations, histories, personal memories and intimate connections are most important in understanding what "makes a city a great place to live". As Jacobs wrote in her book, The Death and Life of Great American Cities, "cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody."

With at least 65 events currently scheduled across Calgary, there is surely a walking tour to be found in or near your neighbourhood or one that you would like to know more about. Over the course of the festival, you can find at least 11 walks occurring within the downtown and area from one hour to two hours.
