Jane's Walk 2020 will take place this May, starting on the weekend of 2-3 May 2020. This will be Jane’s Walk Singapore’s 8th annual series of Walks.
Last year, 16 Walk Leaders stepped up and offered 19 Walks. The Walks covered diverse topics such as architecture, the creation of public spaces with conserved buildings, gentrification, migrant workers, and the achievements of outstanding Singaporean women. The Walks took participants from Tiong Bahru to Toa Payoh, from MacRitchie to Marina Bay, from Clemenceau Avenue to Collyer Quay.

For this May’s Jane’s Walk, we'll like to issue a general call-out for anyone who is interested to be Walk Leaders. Feel free to use your Walk to tell stories, and show everyone what excites you about Singapore. It could be something as simple as showing us around the neighbourhood you grew up in, or a neighbourhood you frequent for reasons of your own.
Interested in conducting your own Jane's Walk this May? Drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll get in touch with you.
Jane’s Walk is an annual series of free, volunteer-led urban walks that honour urbanist, journalist, author, and activist Jane Jacobs (4 May 1916 – 25 April 2006), and her efforts to champion the voices of the masses in neighbourhood planning and city building. The Walks usually take place in the month of May – Mrs Jacobs’ birth month, and each Walk lasts between 90 minutes and three hours.
Jane’s Walk aims to connect, share, and develop ideas among participants and Walk Leaders, about where our communities are at, and where they are headed. Through the simple act of walking, Jane’s Walk encourages participants to take in the physical spaces around them, observe, reflect, share, and re-imagine the places in which they live, work, and play.
