Jonathon Stalls doesn’t approach the streetscape as a planner or as a journalist or as a politician. He approaches it — and this is his term — as a “walking artist.” Jonathan is the Denver-based author of a new book called Walk: Slow Down, Wake Up, and Connect at 1-3 Miles per Hour. For years, he has been leading urban walking excursions that have included planners and elected officials, inviting them to feel for themselves what it’s like to walk the car-centric streets of the communities they serve. Sarah spoke with Jonathon about his book, his Pedestrian Dignity project, which connects with people around the country on social media platforms, and about a shared passion for helping others explore the world outside the confines of the metal boxes known as cars.
