Jane’s Walk Re-Imagined
Since the onset of the Covid-19 Pandemic the local organizing group has been figuring out how to proceed and keep the spirit of Jane’s Walk alive in Edmonton. In the spring of 2020 it was clear we would be unable to continue with in-person walks and the potential of re-scheduling to the fall also became un-doable. In a normal world the walks would occur on the May 7-9 weekend. The volunteer local organizing group has considered our options as the Covid-19 situation evolves and has decided at this time we will stay with virtual opportunities for May and work to host in person walks in conjunction with the EFCL Community League Day in September.
Go to edmonton.ca/COVID-19 for the most recent information on the pandemic response in Edmonton.
In the spring of 2020 we worked to overcome the challenge of physical distancing by collating a number of different formats to continue the impact of sharing stories, creating community and supporting one another through this difficult time. Our top priority is the safety of the community so please act appropriately in this evolving public health crisis. Stay tuned for additional opportunities to get out and explore Edmonton as we draw closer to spring.
We have created the space for a couple of different types of “re-imagined walks” that we are making available to Edmontonians to give you a taste of the Janes Walk experience anytime from the comfort of your home:
Virtual Walking tours: these walks are created by submitting a combination of photos, videos, and text of a walking tour in a google map or blog or other on-line sharing tool.
Once individuals have submitted walks in any of these formats we will be promoting them through our communication channels and on this website.
We are working to develop more details, but if you have questions email admin at Janeswalkedmonton@gmail.com
