WHAT IS PLACEMAKERS?
WHAT IS PLACEMAKERS?

Placemakers is an interdisciplinary and creative team for urban activation. We work to create inclusive and lively urban spaces. Through research, design, and by organizing participation processes we co-develop places with residents, entrepreneurs and other local parties.

EXEMPLARY PROJECTS
De Buurtcamping Neighborhood Camp Site
Entrance_3 Minecraft Community Workshop

Placemakers aims to improve public spaces by co-envisioning and co-creating with the neighborhood. We work primarily in the Netherlands,  but also in Kenya and beyond. For example by organizing an event such as ‘De Buurtcamping’ (The Neighborhood Camp Site), by experimenting with creative research and participation methods, or by adopting Minecraft as a participatory planning strategy for development of a ‘Model Street’.
