Thriving places: When placemaking meets regenerative design

May 14 @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm

Discover how a Placemaking approach can connect people to place, and empower them to create initiatives that improve a place’s fulfilment of their needs.

Placemaking is a worldwide movement with a lot of potential for safety, physical and mental health and active citizenship. However, sometimes it can turn out to be a scattergun with little strategic planning to drive a greater narrative.

Regenerative development is a process that supports the understanding of potential, to design the relationships that create mutually beneficial outcomes; to increase a systems vitality, viability and ability to adapt constructively to change. So, if regenerative development gives us a vision of the healthy thriving place, placemaking is the acupuncture point that catalyzes how it physically happens.

This 50-minute workshop will give you practical experience of placemaking and regenerative development.

To register please access this Eventbrite Link. While the event is free, we ask people to register as spaces are limited. 

The venue for the night will be the Makers Space of The Living Pavilion festival, a temporary placemaking project co-produced by  Thrive Research Hub (Melbourne School of Design), Clean Air and Urban Landscapes Hub (CAUL) of the National Environmental Science Program and The New Student Precinct. There are more than 60 events of various topics occurring as part of this festival. If you would like to know more, please make sure to visit the TLP website or take a look at all their events through TLP-Eventbrite.
