The Sunday walk is in partnership Enough Pie and Charleston Moves, as part of their month-long Awakening: MOTION community arts program. The walk will begin at the Saint Julian Devine Community Center and end at the Charleston Civic Design Center. It will focus on the unique character and walkability of Charleston's Eastside neighborhood. We will also examine the effects of urban highways and discuss emerging civic projects. City staff and neighborhood leaders will be involved in this walking conversation.
Our Jane Jacobs Walks are nationally registered with the Center for the Living City: http://www.janejacobswalk.org/2018-walks/eastside-charleston
Weekend of Jane Jacobs
In order to elevate community dialogue on urban design issues in the city, the City of Charleston's Design Division is organizing four events over four days to celebrate the work and life of Jane Jacobs on her birthday weekend (Thursday May 3rd- Sunday May 6th). Partner organizations, civic leaders, community stakeholders and urbanists will assist in the planning, organizing and leading of the events in various ways. All events are located, or will begin/end, at the Charleston Civic Design Center, which is located at 85 Calhoun Street.
All events are free and open to the public. We strongly encourage your participation in these civic engagements.
