Hello, friends of Jane’s Walk!

The 2017 festival is officially in the works now and we are excited about our growing movement of city-building and walking conversations. The global Jane’s Walk festival will take place on May 5th, 6th, and 7th and we look forward to seeing you out and exploring your neighbourhoods.

There is one big change as we begin the year. We want to extend a very warm thank you to Denise Pinto, our Project Director, who has stepped down from Jane’s Walk to pursue a very exciting book project. Denise has been a dynamic and articulate voice for our project and will continue to be a Jane’s Walk champion and friend. Be sure to follow her journey across Canada on Twitter @denisepinto.

In light of this change, Jane’s Walk is pleased to announce that our 2017 Toronto City Organizer will be Alia Scanlon. Alia is well known to many of you as last year’s City Organizer and is also our current Global Cities Coordinator. She will be dividing her time between the two positions, supported by our wonderful volunteers and a soon-to-be-announced Program Assistant. We know that having Alia at the helm will ensure a phenomenal 2017 festival.

One last piece of news! You are invited to join us for the opening night of the documentary film, “Citizen Jane: Battle for the City” on Friday, April 21 at TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto. At the screening, a select panel will discuss the film and its ideas. A percentage of proceeds from ticket sale will be donated to Jane’s Walk. Mark your calendars and stay tuned for on-sale updates.

Looking ahead, Jane’s Walk aims to build on our record 2016 success. During our 10th Anniversary year there were 1,500 walks in 212 cities. We’d love to grow that number again. Is 2017 the year you lead a walk?

Stay up to date with our plans at janeswalk.org and by joining our mailing list.

From one neighbour to another, thank you for your ongoing enthusiasm and support.
