Leading a Jane's Walk in Calgary - A "How To" Workshop

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.

If you’re curious about leading a Jane’s Walk, The Calgary Foundation and The City of Calgary invite you to attend a “how-to” session. You will receive step-by-step instructions on how to bring your ideas and neighbourhood to life through a walking tour. You then may want to offer to design and lead a free walking tour as part of the 2015 Calgary Jane’s Walk festival (May 1, 2, 3, 2015). But attending this workshop does not commit you to volunteering for the festival.

Jane’s Walks can be done in any neighbourhood and on a variety of themes. For inspiration: Check out the 2014 program to see the range of walks volunteers offered in Calgary last year. Or watch the video that the Calgary Public Library produced from one their Jane’s Walks last year.

This workshop is free and 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.

If you have any questions about this workshop or about leading your own Jane’s Walk, please contact:
