This event and Jane’s Walk initiative is inspired by Jane Jacobs (1916-2006). Jane was a writer, urbanist and activist who championed the voices of everyday people in neighborhood planning and city-building. Jane’s Walk is an annual festival of free, citizen-led walking conversations.
On the first weekend of May every year, Jane’s Walk festivals take place in hundreds of cities around the world. Jane’s Walks encourage people to share stories about their neighborhoods, discover unseen aspects of their communities, and use walking as a way to connect with their neighbors.
