World Labyrinth Day and Jane's Walk: A Neighborly Outreach

Labyrinth keepers hosting World Labyrinth Day events on May 4 may be interested in partnering with your local Jane’s Walk, an annual event held the first weekend in May around the world in honor of Jane Jacobs, urban neighborhood activist and author of the 1961 classic The Death and Life of Great American Cities. Jacobs’ view of the city as an ecosystem has become central to contemporary urban planning. Jane’s Walk features free walking tours of neighborhoods, led by local experts with knowledge to share, because she believed people could only familiarise themselves with the places where they lived, worked, and played by actually walking them.

Here in Ottawa, our local organiser invited the labyrinth committee at St Luke’s Anglican Church, conveniently located in bustling Chinatown, to promote its World Labyrinth Day Walk As One At 1 as a Jane’s Walk event. We had the best turnout ever! We’re definitely planning to do it again this year. Check and see if your community participates in Jane’s Walk. Our deadline this year to apply to be included in the promotional material is April 10th, so be prepared.
