WHAT IS PLACEMAKERS?

WHAT IS PLACEMAKERS?

Placemakers is an interdisciplinary and creative team. We work to create inclusive and lively urban spaces. Through research, workshops and small experiments we co-develop places with residents, entrepreneurs and other local parties.

EXEMPLARY PROJECTS

Placemakers aims to improve public spaces by co-envisioning and co-creating with the neighborhood – in the Netherlands, Kenya and beyond. For example by organizing an event such as ‘De Buurtcamping’ (The Neighborhood Campsite) or by adopting Minecraft as a participatory planning strategy for development of a ‘Model Street’.
