The Alternative Campus Tour is based on the idea of thinking critically about different sites and aspects of the university campus; to dig where you stand; to see the campus as a microcosm of the world; and to imagine and record alternative stories about it.

This Tour explores 23 different sites and features on and around campus, ranging from gardens, sculptures, Indigenous sites, woodlots, and the names of buildings and faculties.

The Jane’s Tour will visit a selection of sites and encourages participants to think critically about the stuff that we pass by in the everyday and that in subtle and subversive ways influence our thinking and actions.
