Jane’s Walk Winnipeg

Jane's Walk is an annual festival of free, citizen-led walking conversations inspired by Jane Jacobs. 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 neighbourhoods and discover unseen aspects of their communities. Celebrating Jane's ideas and principles, we encourage walking together to create connections between creativity and community, to engage experiences as both observers and participants, and for shared reflection, questioning, and re-imagining.

Jane's Walk Winnipeg 2020 is seeking new walks!

Jane's Walk 2020 will be postponed to September due to Covid-19.

Do you know the hidden shortcuts in your neighbourhood? An unknown history that makes your area unique? A favorite stroll that makes you feel alive? Do you know the perfect spot to catch a sunset, or the street that has the best trees?

Wherever your walks lead, we hope you'll consider sharing them. There's no need for formal training, an elaborate script, or detailed historical knowledge - just two feet, a heartbeat, and the gift of a new perspective. Fill out our form, which allows you to clearly explain the intent of your walk. We believe that walking together is a powerful tool for community change, and we hope that you'll take part if you're able.

Sign up to lead a walk in your community.
