Introduction to Placemaking is an intensive two-day course that will equip you with a broad overview in the field of placemaking. This introductory course will cover placemaking concepts, tools, and methods that are being used by professional placemakers around the world. This course also allows you to identify the techniques used by placemakers through discussions, case studies, and interactive exercise.

This course is suitable for professionals and students who are new to the field and are exploring integrating placemaking into their organisation or work. We also encourage teams of professionals embarking on a new project to register as a group to maximise their collective ability in implementing Placemaking projects.
