2015 marks the 20th anniversary of the opening of the Bata Shoe Museum. For the past two decades the BSM has strived to use shoes to tell stories – stories about cultures, stories about history, stories about society and stories about people. This year we are asking you to tell your stories and help us create a map of the world that reflects what shoes look like and represent to the cultures, societies and people who wear them. What corners of the world have your shoes taken you to? What does footwear mean in your culture? What have you accomplished in your favourite pair of shoes? We invite you to use our interactive map to become part of the narrative of the story of shoes and share with us what has happened to you when you have taken the time to discover “the world at your feet”.

The First Annual Larry Bell Urban Forum Presented by UBC Urban Studies. In partnership with SFU City Program and SFU Urban Studies. Twenty years ago, geographer David Harvey described London’s redeveloped Docklands as a “landing strip for capital” from investors around the world. Today, Vancouver has joined London, New York, Sydney and other nodes of a world network of “Hedge Cities”—places to buy real estate to store capital as insurance against an uncertain future. How are cities and public policy reshaped by a world of transnational investment?
