Jane's Walk 2013 on May 4 , 2013 from DUWEST
May 04, 2013
Jane’s Walk is a series of conversational walking tours inspired by urban thinker Jane Jacobs, that helps put people in touch with where they live and with each other. It bridges social and geographic gaps, creating a space for cities to discover themselves. Since its inception in 2007, Jane’s Walk has happened on the first weekend in May in cities across North America, and is growing internationally. In 2012, there were walks in 85 cities and 17 countries around the world, from Calgary to Canberra, Guelph to Guadalajara.
That walk starts promptly at 12:30pm at St. Clarens' Parkette, on the western edge of our BIA, at 1717 Dundas Street West.
Then at 3:30pm we partner with the Little Portugal BIA to present Anatomy of a Street Festival: The Birth of the Dundas West Fest, an insider's glimpse of what exactly it takes to build a street festival from scratch! It will change the way you think about street festivals!
Both walks are FREE, last about 1.5 hours, are open to the public and will be conducted at a leisurely pace throughout our neighbourhood (from Lansdowne to Ossington on and around Dundas Street West).
