LEAD A WALK
While we may not be walking physically together in 2021, it is our hope that our virtual walks will make you feel part of this welcoming community of urban explorers and socially-engaged individuals.
The format may be a little different, but all the key elements that have made these walks outstanding since 2007 are there, as we share our stories and continue exploring the places we live, work, and play in.
We invite Torontonians from all walks of life to join us as we celebrate our city and its neighborhoods, while also reimagining the future of our city together.
Our 3 virtual walk formats are:
LIVE WALKS: Walk Leaders will take you on a live virtual walk by streaming directly from their phone using a video conference application or telephone conference.
Please note that registration will be necessary for Live Walks, and a link will be provided on the day of the walk.
SELF-GUIDED WALKS: Walk Leaders will create engaging audiovisual experiences combining photography, video, text, and audio; giving you the freedom to join the "walk" at any point in the weekend without time constraints.
3D WALKS: By using a platform like Google VR Tour Creator (closing June 30th), Lapentor, or Kuula, Walk Leaders will create a visual narrative and guide you through local neighborhoods using a combination of photos, videos, and text.
We invite Walk Leaders to submit their virtual walks by April 30th, 2021.
This timeframe will allow us to promote and highlight many of your walks on our social networks, newsletters, and local media.
If you need additional guidance or have any questions about the process please reach out to . We're here to help and to make this as easy and fun for you as possible!
