Saturday, Jul 12 at 9:30am - 1:00 pm
David_ley_bus_tour

Dr. David Ley, Professor of Urban Geography at UBC, will take us through Vancouver’s downtown and inner city districts and will emphasize the changing social values of postmodern culture as these are expressed and reproduced in the urban landscape. He will illustrate various views and challenges of the postmodern city.

Participants will gain a deeper understanding of how to read cities by their urban landscape, using Vancouver as a model. The concepts of postmodernity and pluralism will be given concrete form as we study the development of various urban spaces, and will enable us to gain insight into the city as a mission field.

The charter bus will begin at Regent College and will travel through Westside neighbourhoods to Downtown, through Gastown, the Downtown Eastside, Chinatown, Granville Island, Fairview Slopes, Shaughnessy, Oakridge, and then return to Regent.
