SHARING KNOWLEDGE: FROM SOCIAL CONTEXT MAPPING TO PLACEMAKING 101

Since 2010, Placemakers has assembled key learnings and experience with innovative methods for urban research and participation. Translated into a range of workshops, presentations, publications, consultancy and educational programmes, we aim to help organizations envision and develop the future of a space creatively and collectively.
