Simone regularly hosts walks in Newcastle, Australia as part Street Art Walking. As a result of hosting these walks Simone has found many local treasures in each area and loves taking people through the off-beaten paths to discover them.
Simone hosted her first Jane Jacobs Walk in Leichhardt, Sydney in 2016. Jane Jacobs Walks are a series of free neighborhood walking, biking, and transit tours that help put people in touch with their environment and with the people who live in their community.
Their mission is to help people walk, observe, and connect with their community and environment. Walks inspire people to make a difference because they enable members of a community to discover and respond to the complexities of their city and environment through personal and shared observation.
