What is Placemaking? – Project for Public Spaces


***Transforming Communities Series: Placemaking***

Brought to You by My Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well


          The spread of the placemaking approach over the last five years has meant that local communities become much more involved in developing small and “doable” projects that make their communities better places to live. The Project for Public Spaces has helped many communities to make placemaking a normal part of community development. Today’s post offers an excellent introduction to the placemaking phenomenon, with ideas for you to adpat to your community.


“With community-based participation at its center, an effective Placemaking process capitalizes on a local community’s assets, inspiration, and potential, and it results in the creation of quality public spaces that contribute to people’s health, happiness, and well being.”
