There is no doubt that in urban circles, and wider, placemaking is having its moment. It is talked about and delivered by planners and policy makers, artists, architects, activists and communities across the globe. We have Project for Public Spaces’ international cohort of placemakers, Placemaking Leadership Council. We have conferences the world over taking placemaking as their theme. We have multiple academic papers and media articles on placemaking. We have city authority’s worldwide naming and adopting placemaking approaches in their strategic plans.
