Dozens of urban dwellers are taking guided tours through urban spaces in Regina and Saskatoon this weekend.

More than 20 tours of urban spaces in Regina and Saskatoon this weekend

Dozens of people in Regina and Saskatoon are participating in the Jane's Walk movement this weekend.

The event sees community members with niche areas of interest and expertise guide walking tours through urban spaces with unique histories for two days.

This year, Saskatchewan joins more than 100 other cities that are participating. 

Shawn Storry, a Saskatoon artist and urban planner, guided people through Broadway and Nutana's back alleys and corridors on Saturday for a tour of local graffiti and street art.

"At the very core it is about getting people to think about their urban space," Storry said. "I wanted to bring people out ... graffiti is where I found my niche and my interest so I wanted to share that with other people."

A typical Jane's Walk lasts about 90 minutes. For more information, go to Jane's Walk website.
