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.*
