Janes Walk, AshnolaGet your walking shoes on (or other means of mobility). The popular Jane’s Walk events will soon be here. From May 6 to 8 (Fri – Sun), 2016, cities around the world will celebrate the tenth anniversary of Jane’s Walk, commemorating urban enthusiast Jane Jacobs. (This year also happens to be the 100th anniversary of Jane’s birth.) Several walks are scheduled for Vancouver. From the main website: “Whether the conversation is about art, architecture, soundscapes, diversity, history, nature, technology, cuisine or culture, every one of Vancouver’s transforming neighbourhoods has a story to tell.”
