Regent is pleased to once again offer “Postmodern Urban Spaces,” a bus tour of Vancouver and its districts led by Dr. David Ley, Professor Emeritus of Geography at UBC.

Please join us Saturday, July 8 from 9 am to 1 pm as David takes us through Vancouver’s downtown and inner city districts, emphasizing the changing social values of postmodern culture as expressed and reproduced in these urban landscapes. He will discuss the various views and challenges of the postmodern city.

An always-popular summer event, the tour will give participants 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 depart from Regent College at 9:30 am (please arrive by 9 am) and will travel through Westside neighbourhoods to downtown Vancouver, through Gastown, the Downtown Eastside, Chinatown, Granville Island, Fairview Slopes, Shaughnessy, and Oakridge before returning to Regent at 1 pm.


Tickets are $35 per person. Space is limited, so register today at the button below to avoid disappointment.
