Event Type

Please join us for a thoughtful conversation as we explore what a better future could look like, and ask “how can we get there?”

What is placemaking anyway?

Lots of people talk about placemaking these days but what does it actually mean? Does it do what people promise?

This video shows one view of placemaking:

The Place Man is a documentary (20 minutes) that explores the roots of the placemaking movement through the life of Fred Kent, who has devoted his life to creating public spaces for people. The film begins with Fred sharing his passion for understanding why people feel good and how that can be translated into designing public spaces that foster a sense of social connection and community.

In this month’s community discussion, we’re going to approach placemaking from three different perspectives or contexts – Architecture, Gardening, and Transport.

RSVP essential using the form on this page.
