What is a place, who is it “making” and what is placemaking?

Placemaking Event


17 March 2020


Ljubljana (Slovenia)


22 March 2020



On our second meeting of the workshop (Zoom meeting due to Covid19), participating students were delivered a lecture by the artistic mentors of the ProstoRož. The lecture systematically covered notions and phenomena such as place, community, collective memory, place identity and similar. Members of Prostorož shared the craft of placemaking with students and presented it through their past projects and actions, explaining how placemaking shall belong and empower everyone. The lecture was followed by a lively discussion among all participating students and mentors, debating the balances between the built, the social, the ecological and the artistic qualities of a place.  

Zoom recording of the lecture is available on request.
