BLOCK 3: PLACEMAKING

10:05

PANEL SESSION 2:

APPROACHES TO

CREATIVE PLACEMAKING

The National Endowment for the Arts (USA) defines creative placemaking as when “partners from public, private, nonprofit and community sectors strategically shape the physical and social character of a neighborhood, town, tribe, city or region around arts and cultural activities. Creative placemaking animates public and private spaces, rejuvenates structures and streetscapes, improves local business viability and public safety, and brings diverse people together to celebrate, inspire and be inspired." The panel explores this trend and how regeneration initiatives can evoke local qualities of a place through involving the community through arts and culture. What are some of the successful efforts, available key policies and challenges related to the long term planning of creative placemaking? How can landscape architects, architects, planners, designers and developers collaborate with local artisans and community members to create a place that can flourish economically and culturally?
