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. We are also now part of the worldwide network of placemakers: Placemakers Leadership Council .
