We were really excited to attend and meet fellow placemakers at Placemaking Week in Amsterdam in October. Our proposed presentation “Small encounters for big change – fieldnotes from Placemakers” took place during the Community Process -session.
We took a lot with from the 4 days of fully packed, fully interesting programme, discussions, workshops and talks. Issues around better cities and placemaking are truly universal and multidisciplinary – and we, as artists and designers, are happy to be part of it.
For 2018 we are developing new projects and a series of workshops around placemaking-issues targeted to the “enablers” – the city officials, whose work is related to the issues and could enable and initiate placemaking processes in their own field.
