Virtual Walks

Virtual walks are self-led and available on-demand.

St. Georges Rainway Sensorial Walk (City of Vancouver)

The City of Vancouver worked with Engineering Artist in Residence Holly Schmidt to develop a self guided audio walk of St. George Street. This short walk focuses on getting people to use their 5 senses to experience the street in a different way. There are signs with QR codes at each stop that are linked to the narration that accompanies each stop.

360 Riot Walk (Powell St. Festival Society)

360 Riot Walk is an interactive walking tour of the 1907 Anti-Asian Riots in Vancouver, the ancestral territory of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tseil-Waututh people, created by artist Henry Tsang. Tsang is an artist and occasional curator whose projects explore the spatial politics of history, language, community, food and cultural translation in relationship to place.

360 Riot Walk utilizes 360 video technology to trace the history and route of the mob that attacked the Chinese Canadian and Japanese Canadian communities following the demonstration and parade organized by the Asiatic Exclusion League in Vancouver. Participants are brought into the social and political environment of the time where racialized communities were targeted through legislated as well as physical acts of exclusion and violence. The soundtrack is available in four languages of the local residents of the period: English, Cantonese, Japanese and Punjabi.
