We are looking for proposals for Leeds walks for the global Jane's Walks Festival on 5-7 May 2017. Leeds is taking part for the first time. Walks can be of any type, as long as they are within Leeds during that weekend
The Jane's Walks Festival takes place on 5-7 May 2017. It is an annual, global festival of walking, in honour of Jane Jacobs, who died in 2006 and championed local neighbourhoods and the power of observation in understanding places.
Leeds is joining the festival for the first time, and we are looking for proposals for walks to take place over the weekend. Walks can be of any type, and we are looking in particular for the following:
- neighbourhood-based walks
- walks in the city centre on particular topics
- walks which encourage people to observe or engage with the urban environment
walks can be local history, architecture, planning, environmentally or artistically based, we are looking to put together a varied and interesting programme for the weekend.
Please note that our funding is only to publicise the event as a whole, so we have no funding for walks and walk leaders or other expensesContact the curator
"To develop urban literacy and a community-based approach to city building by encouraging citizen-led walking tours that make space for every person to observe, reflect, share, question and collectively reimagine the places in which they live, work and play. In this way, we honour the legacy of Jane Jacobs whose writings championed the voices of local residents in neighbourhood planning"
