Event Details

Tour Description

Tour Hosts: Kera McArthur (chief host) and Special Guests (tour co-hosts)

Create-a-tour is a collective, organic walk experience.

The route is not pre-planned by the chief host, but instead created by the co-hosts themselves. In advance of the walk, each co-host is asked to choose a spot where they will share a story or bit of history.

Co-hosts submit their stops as part of registration and the chief host plans the walk route based on what is submitted. On the walk, each co-host will then tell their story when the walk arrives at their stop. We also welcome regualr walkers who do not want to participate in tour creation to come listen.

Gastown is one of Vancouver’s oldest neighbourhoods, rich in stories from its past and present. Whether it is tales of Gassy Jack in the frontier town of the nineteenth century, the highs and lows of the twentieth century, or the new developments of the twenty-first century, it is impossible to talk about Vancouver without talking about Gastown. In this participatory tour, walkers will share their perspectives on Gastown creating a unique walk of the area.

Tour Chief Host and Co-hosts Bios

Kera McArthur is a Think City board member. She is currently the associate director communications of the University of British Columbia's campus and community planning department.

Kera's tour co-hosts will be added over the coming weeks as they sign-up (see Special Instructions below).

Jane's Walk

Jane's Walk is held simultaneously in cities across Canada and other countries around the world. Inspired by Jane Jacob's and her belief that in order to know your city "you have to get out and walk," Jane's Walk is a simple idea. It is free, it connects people and builds communities by promoting urban literacy and citizen engagement.
