Event Details

Come experience the vibrant culture of the Persian community settled in North Vancouver

OPEN – No registration required. If this walk appears to be “SOLD OUT” you can still just show up for the walk as there is no limit to the number of participants.

Description: The walk aims to introduce the Persian culture, and I intend to inspire people to talk about cultural differences, and how to embrace them and move toward a more inclusive community. This walk is a good opportunity for people to talk about their cultural backgrounds as well as getting to know one of the oldest cultures in Middle East, a country called Iran!

Walk Leader: Pegah – As an urban, planner and designer, I intend to share my enthusiasm for cities and urban residents, and encourage us to look at our surrounding through a different lens. My intention is to instill this sense of community and responsibility among citizens and contribute to creating an inclusive community.
