Get out and walk! Explore, learn and share through a Jane’s Walk in Raleigh, NC
This is the inaugural year of Jane’s Walk in Raleigh. Jane’s Walk is an innovative, yet simple global movement that brings residents together on a journey of discovery about their place, by taking planned walks of their city designed by residents one weekend a year (May 3-4, 2014).
In Raleigh’s first year, our goal is simple: to get the word out and maximize participation. Anyone can get involved by designing a walk or participating in an existing walk. What would you like to share with fellow residents on a walking tour of your town? What are the undiscovered gems? What are the strengths or challenges? What areas deserve greater attention? Do you have a particular theme of walk you’d like to see happen or want to do yourself? Historical? Local food and brews? Architecture? Family friendly? For new residents? College streets? School neighborhoods?
Ideally, we are also looking for sponsors or crowd-funding options that would allow walks to serve the additional purpose of identifying one small, inexpensive ($500 or less), easy to implement idea that could make a meaningful difference for that space. As walks are designed by residents, they will be listed here. Select a walk and join us! Or contact us about a walk you’d like to lead or if you are interested in sponsoring/funding solutions.
