Understanding the city through placemaking

Presented as part of the annual DESIGN Canberra festival (4-24 November 2019) which celebrates and promotes Canberra as a global city of design. A Craft ACT: Craft + Design Centre initiative.
Join Obelia Tait and Aliza Levy on a tour of civic square and the city centre viewed through a placemaking lens. Placemaking has been described as “Strengthening the connection between people and the places they share, placemaking refers to a collaborative process by which we can shape our public realm.” As elements of Canberra city have moved from the masterplan toward a placemaking models, it’s important to understand exactly what that means. The walking tour will culminate in a workshop where the space will be reimagined with your ideas as to what constitutes a truly human, activated central hub of the city.
