Creating Better Cities at the Placemaking Summit

Placemaking is more than just creating better public spaces – it’s about drawing together expert practitioners and citizens to collectively shape and transform Australian regions and cities.

The movement is gaining momentum here in Australia but there’s still plenty to learn, with an abundance of emerging frameworks and design processes to untangle – and who better to learn from but the best in placemaking, planning and urban renewal?

            placemaking best!

What Exactly Is Placemaking, Anyway


The term placemaking has become a popular buzzword in recent years but what
does it actually mean?

Placemaking is a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management
of public spaces.

The inaugural Summit will explore the ins and outs of placemaking, unpacking:

         +  How we realise the true value of placemaking.
         +  Adopting a placemaking focus at the outset.
         +  How to get stronger financial returns and focus on the commercial
             benefits of placemaking.

They’ll gather 
in public if you give them a good place to do it."
