What do you see?

  • YJ's Snack Bar 128 W 18th St Kansas City, Missouri

What do you see when you walk around your city?

This walk will explore walking as an ethnographic research method. Participants will explore and share while walking, and learn about walking as a transportation means instead of just an exercising activity. We will explore the Crossroad and some parts of West Side neighborhoods. We are going to talk about the things we will NOT see, hear, touch, and notice when we are NOT walking and also the things we will notice.

Time: 10:00am

Date: Saturday, May 5th

Event Start: In front of YJ’s snack bar at 128 W 18th St  in the historic Crossroad district. We will walk around 1 hour with fun, artistic and foody stops in both Crossroad and West side neighborhoods.

Event  End: We will finish our walk around noon somewhere around Summit and 17th.   You will have many local choice for having your Saturday lunch!
