Spacing receives 2010 Jane Jacobs Prize
Spacing magazine has been awarded the 2010 Jane Jacobs Prize, presented by Ideas That Matter. The prize, first awarded in 1998 celebrates work which contributes to the fabric of Toronto life in ways that exemplify the ideas of urban theorist Jane Jacobs.

“Spacing’s editors look very carefully at how the city works, what the street-level dynamics are in this city, and how we work together in the city economically,” said Ideas that Matter in presenting the magazine with the award. “This, of course, is very much in tune with Jane Jacobs’ ideas that rather than starting with an ideological or theoretical approach about how things work, you should start with observing closely and drawing your lessons from there.... Residents and visitors alike find the magazine an ideal guide to the city.”

Also awarded the 2010 Jane Jacobs Prize is Doors Open Toronto creator Catherine Nasmith. Each winner receives $5,000 a year for three years and is invited to meet together with other recipients to discuss their experiences and knowledge of what makes Toronto work, according to the Ideas That Matter site.
