About this Walk
Please join the Women’s Centre of Calgary for our annual Jane’s Walk! In the spirit of Jane Jacobs, we will have a look at how urban planning affects women in their daily lives.
As we walk the streets of the Bridgeland area and the pathways of East Village, we will discuss urban planning through a gender-plus lens, exploring how the layout of a city affects women and individuals from diverse communities. We will be talking about reconciliation, mobility, gentrification and herstory of women. All genders welcome.
Please note: This is a one-way walk but you are welcome to walk back to the Women’s Centre afterwards.
We would like to acknowledge that a 2 hour walk may not be accessible for people of all different abilities. The walk itself takes around 30 minutes but it will be spread out with multiple stops and chances for breaks and some sitting. While the walk should be accessible by wheelchair, sidewalks may have lips and narrow at parts. If you have questions about your accessibility needs and participating in this walk, please contact Amanda: firstname.lastname@example.org or 403-264-1155 ext 243.
