Do you have a favorite city space, or neigh­bour­hood spot? Do you have knowl­edge to share about local his­to­ry, her­itage, or com­mu­ni­ties? Do you have a favorite park, or want peo­ple to look clos­er at our city’s flo­ra and fau­na? Maybe you’ve been wait­ing for an oppor­tu­ni­ty to start a con­ver­sa­tion about a cause, or facil­i­tate build­ing com­mu­ni­ty? Well, con­sid­er lead­ing a walk!

Fill out the I want to lead a Jane’s Walk Google Form and tell us about your walk!

We believe that shar­ing a walk (or ride or roll) is a pow­er­ful tool for com­mu­ni­ty change, and we hope that you’ll take part! 

Jane’s Walk is an annu­al fes­ti­val of free, cit­i­zen-led walk­ing con­ver­sa­tions inspired by cit­i­zen activist 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.

Win­nipeg Walks take place May 3rd through the 5th, 2024. Join us! *Walks are FREE and open to any­one, acces­si­bil­i­ty infor­ma­tion will be pro­vid­ed with each walk sum­ma­ry as they are post­ed, they are non-com­mer­cial and non-par­ti­san, and they are meant to encour­age and sup­port dialogue.*

There is no log­ic that can be super­im­posed on the city; peo­ple make it, and it is to them, not build­ings, that we must fit our plans.” ~ Jane Jacobs

We also have a library of vir­tu­al Jane’s Walk maps that are acces­si­ble through­out Jane’s Walk week­end and beyond. You can choose a map and head out on your own and come back to try a new route anytime!
