Place Week VIC 2019 – 11th-17th May
Place Week is a week-long series of activities that support and celebrate the work of those seeking to transform our public spaces into places where communities can come together.
Last year, from the 20th to the 28th of May, Place Agency and our industry partners launched Place Week VIC as an effort to align event independently planned into a single week to celebrate Place and showcase our collective work. It was an astounding success with a total of 10 events reaching over 200 people.
