WildHackney Walk – Sat 5th May 11:30am – part of Jane’s Walk London

Jane’s Walk is a global walking event to celebrate the life and waork of the Urbanist Jane Jacobs. I am co-ordinating Jane’s Walk London and leading a walk through Hackney called WildHackney. Come along and tweet what you see and upload ypur photos along the way! A link to the website is here: http://janeswalk.org/walks/view/wild_hackney/ or you can follow us on @JanesWalkLondon and @lianemendsacity This walk will take in the signs and sounds of weird Hackney. From street art ghost signs shopfronts markets and the quirky urban minutiae lurking under our noses but hiding under a cloak of “everyday” as we go about our zombie commute or too-busy-checking-my-phone-to-look. Make walking more than just getting from A to B. Make it an opportunity to learn the art of seeing. Route information: Starting at Stoke Newington Church Street proceeding down Stoke Newington High Street Kingsland High Street Dalston Lane Back onto Kingsland Road Laburnum Street Haggerston Estate Queensbridge Road Hackney Road Old Street Curtain Road Great Eastern Street finishing on Old Street.”
