What is Placemaking?

Placemaking utilizes arts, culture, and creativity to establish a gathering space for the community. It also serves a community’s interest while driving a broader agenda for change, growth, and transformation in a way that also builds character and quality of place (Source: Artscape DIY). As a process, placemaking inspires people to collectively reimagine and reinvent public spaces as the heart of every community. It is often a recommendation from a destination assessment, where gaps in activity and engagement are identified.
