Open Call for Walk Leaders.
We would like to get the word out to individuals, organizations and extended networks about Jane's Walk in Winnipeg.
Open Call for Walk Leaders: Jane's Walk 2014
May 3 & 4, 2014
Do you have an idea for a fun, informative, unusual way of looking at cities and neighbourhoods? Jane's Walk wants you to organize a walk in your community!
Jane’s Walk celebrates the ideas and legacy of urbanist Jane Jacobs by getting people out exploring their neighbourhoods and meeting their neighbours. Free walks held on the first weekend of May each year are led by locals who want to create a space for residents to talk about what matters to them in the places they live and work.
Organizing a Jane's Walk is easy. It simply involves planning a route, thinking through the stories, places and people and ideas you want to hear and talk about, and promoting it around your neighbourhood.
For more information check out our Open Call for Walk Leaders and be sure to visit janeswalk.org and "like" our Facebook Page. Questions and inqueries can be directed to Matt Carreau at firstname.lastname@example.org

Tickets: $15 / $20 This spring, challenge your preconceptions of life with the Winnipeg premiere of Fefu and Her Friends! The play is set in a country house in New England in the spring of 1935 and takes the audience through an entire day, beginning in the morning as Fefu’s guests arrive to plan a charity event and climaxing in a murder scene in the evening. The site specific nature of the play will have the audience roving to different rooms to watch the action unfold. Although written in 1977, the play explores timely theme of oppression and how we attempt to deal with our feelings of discomfort in a repressive society.
We are excited to be presenting this work in the beautiful old heritage house operated by the University Women’s Club of Winnipeg, as it fulfills our mandate of using new or non-traditional forms of theatrical representation to tell stories. Mark your calendars, save the date or book now! Fefu and Her Friends is a one-of-a-kind production you won’t want to miss and with only 60 seats per performance it is bound to sell out fast!
