Case study workshop 1: Tavernes
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Join us for an on-site workshop in the city of Tavernes de Valldigna, some 50 kilometers away from Valencia!
Tavernes is located between the ocean and the mountains and divided into two parts: la playa de Tavernes and the village itself. We will work at three locations in the village itself, which can be characterized as poor areas with abandoned factories waiting to be transformed into new destinations and inhabitants in need of fresh perspectives.

You will participate in a placegame, matching your own expertise to that of the local participants. The Place Game is a tool for evaluating any public space and examining it through guided observation strategies. The best part about the Place Game? Anyone can use it. Because of its accessibility, the Place Game is an ideal activity for community workshops as it gives local residents an easy tool with which to identify the assets and shortcomings of the public spaces they use every day and identify and co-create recommendations and actions for the short and long term.

Learn all about the Placegame Tool, experience yourself how to use it while working on an actual case! We look forward to having you on our Tavernes team for the day.

(*) Bus leaves at 8am. Meeting point: La Base

Case study workshop 3: La Marina de Valencia - Future of Work
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

From e-mails in bed to octogenarian employees, our working days and working lives have transformed beyond recognition.
De-centralised, de-localised and atomised. The flexible, the occasional and the precarious. On-demand, straight-to-your-doorstep, anytime and anywhere. It seems that these changes are destined to only shrink and disaggregate urban life. Are we doomed to an age of working in bed?

Could the changing needs and technologies of work instead be the opportunity to invent a new way come together in the city– according to our rhythms and desires?

What if the future was ours to design?

Join us for a day collective design and practical utopianism at La Base, Marina de Valencia. Taking one of the Tinglados of the Marina as the site of our speculation, we will draft plans for a work-space fit for the future.

This activity would aim to open a broad discussion and promote on-site experimentation about the relation of urban spaces with the future of work. The discussion would build on the civic innovation process that the Valencian Public Service of Employment (LABORA) has developed in recent years in collaboration with "Carpe Studio". Workshops and theoretical contributions about space and emerging business models would be made in collaboration with the British research center, "Autonomy".

During the workshop we will get to know about the transformation of Labora based in re-thinking employment policies and job centers in the Valencian Region and the processes they have developed with CARPE and Autonomy. After a guided tour of Tinglado 4, a building dedicated to work spaces in the Marina, we will work through creative dynamics to reflect and co-create spaces capable of hosting the work of the future.

Case study workshop 2 : Placemaking for Innovation @ La Marina de Valencia
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

The modern landscape of La Marina de València is the result of a big scale urban transformation propelled by the celebration of the America's Cup in 2007.

Shortly after, the irruption of the crisis proved the weaknesses of the project and La Marina became for most people the visual evidence of the collapse of a seemingly infallible development model, to which there seemed to be no alternatives.

This workshop will be a good introduction to the main venue of PWE. We will briefly explain the history prior to 2016, when La Marina de València began to rethink itself. We will discuss the difficulties of departure, why public space is considered an element of central importance for La Marina and the guidelines that frame the actions developed so far and the ones to com.

After this first introduction to the context, we will perform an on-site exercise to approach the potential of one of the elements - undervalued until now - of greater importance for the Public Space Strategy of La Marina: the covered square of Tinglado Nº2.

Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

In La Marina we work on an area with a great public space and attractive buildings.
The relationship between the buildings in public space is crucial for a vital La Marina. With the Eye Level Game we hope to get more insights on short and long term ways for improvement.
 
About the Eye Level Game
 
Bring new liveliness in your street
by hosting an Eye Level Game:
celebrate the importance of human
scale and approach an urban area
from the pedestrian’s point of view.
This game will not only help with the

engagement of the local community in
improving their own street, it will also
give those with a background in urban
planning, development, urban design
and architecture new perspectives
on streets and public places.

Ongoing TOOL EXPO
The Placemaking Toolbox is an important source for inspiration, interaction, knowledge exchange and collaboration among the Placemaking Europe network. The PLACEMAKING TOOL EXPO will showcase unique insights about the current development of the toolbox. For example, how to develop a tool from a successful story/approach and how to write a manual for your own tool. 

Several amazing placemaking tools from members of the network will be exhibited as well. During the breaks in the program you can come and listen to pitches by the placemakers behind the tools. How are these tools developed? How are tools put to use in cities around the world? Is every tool replicable in another context? How do you find or develop the right tool for your local challenge? All these questions will be asked in the space where you can experience placemaking at its best, in action!

This film screening will directly precede Tópio in the William H. Whyte venue. 

To confront the lack of playful spaces in Mexico City, “Somos juego” is materialized in three playful and ephemeral installations in Mexico city´s public space, under the premise of the participatory design of the children's community with the support of professional designers. The closing of the project shows through a documentary video, the results of the playful installations in the three spaces and the different perceptions of the children.

Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Defining a district can be arbitrary, any selection is arbitrary, but areas traced by infrastructures might sort differently, depending on how permeable contexts are and how they host inhabitants, feeling sometimes even a sense of belonging. Naba’a, Lebanon is foremost a multi-layered complex and very inspiring neighbourhood, but it can be a status, a way to overlay formal and informal, a place that requires several perspectives and so a peculiar manner to think about urban and architectural transformations. We’ll apply the Naba’a process in El Cabanyal neighbourhood with an 8km walk or bike ride looking for local identities and shapes showing aggregation or segregation phenomena, formal and informal coexistence.

Placemaking on the water
With an ongoing real estate speculation more and more cities are facing the privatisation of (formerly public) waterfronts. This means that the public access to the water, especially in dense urban areas, is under thread. Placemaking activities ON the water could be a possible way of addressing this challenge. Even though in most European countries waterways are (strictly) regulated, there are often more possibilities of placemaking and less bureaucratic boundaries then on public spaces.
In this Workshop we will examine possible placemaking methods on the water and elaborate on selected case studies. Punta de Mar will serve as a practice example.

Tópio - film screening
The documentary depicts the first, pilot period of the Tópio program, that took place in 2015-2016 in a public high school in Thessaloniki, Greece, activating the youth and the local neighbourhood through non-formal education and creative placemaking.

This film screening will directly follow Somos Juego in the William H. Whyte venue. 

// Our Vision and Goals // Tópio is a program seeking to function as a catalyst for urban change on a neighbourhood level with a city-wide effect. Our team develops active citizenship empowerment and training programs and projects for all ages, prompting the participants to become the placemakers of their own community. Our aim is to re-imagine the neighbourhood as an open platform of discussion and interaction for the whole city, where the School and the students are the core and leading factors of the transformation both inside and outside the school doors, having culture and creativity as our compass. Besides that, we use creativity, placemaking and non-formal education methods and tools in order to engage local communities, and city administrations and other stakeholders into the city-making movement and process. Tópio was initiated as a program that seeks to give voice and power to a group of people, like youth, who are usually left out of the decision-making and planning processes. Therefore, inclusion is one of the main principles and aims of the programs and activities we develop. We envision a sustainable, inclusive city, consisting of active communities and neighbourhoods, where self-organization meets government facilitation.

Urban Exorcism
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Through nocturnal exploration and the use of art as a playful filter of vision, this activity proposes a renewal in the way people see stigmatized places.
The idea is to construct a new narrative for those “anti-places” of all cities, generally stigmatized neighborhoods, but that have diverse urban manifestations and great cultural importance.
With a masks workshop, a night walk and a photo essay, a sensitive layer of perception of the territory is proposed. The idea is to explore, investigate and use space in unusual moments - the night and dawn, promoting a different view of the place, taking advantage of the moment to make the activity a playful encounter with the environment and with all the participants. Several influences from old games and from other localities are incorporated into the proposal, so that elements of other cultures are also used in the creation of masks, as well as in the appropriation of the place and in the photographic essay itself.

Virtual Reality at the Tool Expo
Virtual reality is a powerful tool that helps in the realisation of a design and helps in the participation process with the community and clients. The pilot case of high density Sluisbuurt in Amsterdam has been a subject of city-wide discussion for a number of years. We will present a Virtual Reality pilot of a new city street in this area. In our study we show that we can actually measure the behaviour of people, where they look and walk, etc. We hope with this new data/knowledge, we can make a Better City at Eye Level #fromlivabletolovable. Virtual reality in placemaking is an emerging participation tool as it helps in creating a lovable and attractive area which involves the future residents, local entrepreneurs, municipality, developers and other stakeholders to visualise what is going to be there. Looking forward to the power & potential of VR in the coming expo at Valencia Placemaking Week.

Answers to Urban Friction
Friction in city life is never far away. The question is what we do with it? The growth of migrant communities in the midst of our already densely populated city centers, the hardened conflict between ‘sworn enemies’ in the same city, the everyday challenges of living together in a refugee camp are all magnified examples of causes of urban friction. What can we learn from them? What are the biggest questions left? And how can we tackle those together?

Creative Bureaucracy: Stories of Success and Failure from Around the World
In this workshop, we will focus on six practices from the United Kingdom, France, Canada, Germany and the Netherlands. After short presentations, the workshop will focus on collective stories of successful and failed attempts at making governments more creative through placemaking activities. The workshop will also focus on another critical question: how can, and do, creative bureaucracies facilitate these mainly civic initiatives? The goal is to provide insights on effective strategies to make bureaucracies more creative. This workshop is a kickstart to a knowledge sharing corner called “Creative Bureaucracy Café” that will run throughout the length of the conference.

Digital cities and smart citizens
In placemaking, or broader, urban development, the role of data and smart technology is rarely discussed besides the visions of big tech companies for “smart cities”. Yet, we are surrounded by these technologies in our everyday life, in our streets, neighbourhoods and cities. It can provide new modes of transport and mobility, new ways of local distribution and the infrastructure for organising the commons, to name just a few. It could also help us monitor placemaking interventions, support participation and lead to whole set of new tech placemaking tools. But, and not unimportantly, the data we spread during the day as walk the streets or engage through FB are not open, democratically controlled or used for the benefit of improving our surroundings. They are mainly controlled and owned by big tech companies. But best practices like the City of Barcelona and the Decode project show how we can actively manage the produced Data for the benefits of the citizen. In this session you will learn about the current debate on digital cities , the need for digital rights and smart citizens. We kick off with three pitches by knowledgeable and critical thinkers:
Anna Domaradzka on the right to the smart city, Esmeralda Garcia on the PropTech startup Neighbourlytics and Vaishali Aggarwa on smart mobility in India. Followed by a group discussion around the statements of the pitchers. Christian Grauvogel will moderate this session.
Let’s bring the data and smart tech discussion into the field of placemaking!

How Place interacts with well-being
Very evidently, the built environment influences our physical health, but what about our mental health? How do we experience the street in our day to day lives? How can psychological experience of the street inform placemaking? Is there potential to positively influence mental wellbeing?

This session will draw upon environmental psychology to explore the links between mental wellbeing, street experience and urban planning. After being introduced to key concepts and questions, we’ll move outdoors to experiment with those concepts with observation, games and activities. We’ll explore the dominant factors contributing to over or under stimulation, what parts of the street enhance or detract from experience, and how the street experience could be improved through placemaking practice.

Environmental psychology is a scientific discipline focusing on the relationship between individuals and their environment, how they interact and influence each other. One of the many emerging questions in the current research on cognitive science and architecture is the role of attention in our experience of the built environment. With the knowledge about cognitive overload, habituation or mindfulness practice we can conclude that the level of stimulation of our attention has direct impact on many well-being issues, such as increased stress or anxiety. Through this the level of stimulation directly influences our behaviour towards others in public space.

Lately, with the help from neuroscience a neurophenomenological approach was developed, which combines both subjective and objective data and brings legibility to the research from cognitive science and further arguments for architecture professionals to design for human needs.

Integrating Waterfront Placemaking
People love water. We crave any opportunity to be near it, on it, or in it. Water can offer a different experience every time. Cities with access to water have a potential for their waterfronts to add great quality of life for the urban community. Yet, many waterfronts have been underutilized, due to past industrial use or spatial separation from the city. But luckily, that is changing.
Much as water has shaped communities, the truly great waterfront places are also shaped by their community. Waterfronts are dynamic and desired places, as they offer unique experiences and connections, which people are drawn to. How are waterfront communities engaging and inviting citizens to shape their waterfronts as vibrant public places? Speakers from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Netherlands, Turkey, and the United Kingdom will share their experiences and challenges in connecting people to their waterfront places.

Place Led development: Real Estate meets Placemaking - the why and what
Placemaking should be integrated and interwoven into the real estate development process. This is what we call "Place Led Development". From placemaking as one-time temporary interventions to placemaking as a structural fundament under urban development. Place Led Development is area and property development that considers placemaking not something temporary at the beginning or at the end but takes the lessons from place making as a fundament. Place Led Development uses the lessons around the city at eye level and placemaking in each stage of the development process, to make sure we get areas with great human scale, areas for people, buildings that interact with public space

Session 1 discovers the ‘why’ and ‘what’, and explores the new roles of the different partners in the development process.

Placemaking Hand in Hand with Children
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Do you know that adults' views on the needs of children in an urban environment are often quite different from what children expect from space? Well yes, our experience proves that children care about very general qualities of space more than about expensive equipment, they tend to be very reasonable in their expectations, really attentive towards other deprived groups and able to raise community standards of quality. Do join us and find out how inspiring can be to work hand in hand with children, we promise you it will change your perspective about placemaking forever.

Are children ́s perspectives effectively considered in urban designs? Placemaking with children is not only about sharing outcomes with them but taking their contribution as meaningful inputs for sustainable urban development throughout the whole process. Is about implementing innovative learning models and shaping institutional hierarchies in the process of understanding cities and all of its users and creating places where everyone can enjoy.

Children are honest about their needs; they can easily express their concerns and the obstacles they face when using spaces. Children have the ability to see beyond their individual interests and understand places more comprehensively, rationalizing people's behavior, creating environmental awareness and suggesting simple solutions with a big impact to overcome urban-related challenges.


This workshop will enable you to understand how involving children as our partners in the process of urban design and co-creation of spaces can result in surprisingly reasonable solutions and also highlight the relationship between places, social justice, sustainable development, and human rights in the process of placemaking.

Community-led Design, Co-design, and Co-activation
Let’s truly involve the people and design together, also in areas where people are less privileged. What are ways of doing that? You can go from community-led design, where people bring in ideas en develop themes and functions for the area to co-designing, whereby people also engage in the choices and work collectively with the architect and developers. Taking it a step further would also involve them in programming and managing the place. All options have requirements, positive outcomes, possible pitfalls and unexpected side effects.

In this session we briefly present the three perspectives and then engage in an active discussion, whereby we’ll bring in all the expertise in the room to learn collectively from each others successes and failures.

With presentations from Tullio Ponzi, on the Mais Vida nos Morros programme in Brazil, Husam Al-Waer on the disconnect between the desire to engage the public, and the reality of the standard consultation procedures followed, and Jacqueline Bleicher, on codesigning with youth.

Engaging Stakeholders in Conflict - exploring human behaviour in placemaking
As professionals of the city using co-creation and inclusive methods, we are often faced with a recurrent challenge: how to succeed at mobilizing people? How to reach those who don’t have time, who have other concerns than improving public space, or other good reasons not to engage for that matter? On the other side what are private and public actors afraid of? What are reasons for them not to commit?

Actually there is a whole list of different reasons, justifications or excuses that prevent us from engaging.
Actors of the city should consider more closely the key levers and barriers to (in)action in order to avoid an increasing inequality and segregation. This is important in order to engage more people around the transformation of public spaces, of cities, and hopefully of the planet.

In this collaborative workshop, we will identify and break down some of the barriers that prevent people from taking action, using creative problem solving methods. We will use a concrete example in the context of Amsterdam around retail offering, where specific barriers to engagement where faced. You are welcome to bring your own behaviour examples!

From Place Making to Place Management: From Temporary Interventions to Long Term Impact
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Placemaking often has the notion of cute temporary interventions: get out the deckchairs, start with the petunias. Of course, we love the Quicker-Lighter-Cheaper and Tactical Urbanism hands-on approach. However, it has to be part of a longer term organization, because it takes years, if not decades, to really, genuinely turn a place around. How do we get from one-time placemaking to long-term place management? What kind of organization models can we use? What kind of long term funding do we have?

In this session, we will tap into the extensive knowledge of Ethan Kent (Project for Public Spaces and PlacemakingX), Peter Williams and Hajir Kheder (The Means), Giles Semper (BIDs Southampton), Rozina Spinnoy (BIDs Belgium) and Wouter Jan Verheul (Erasmus University). And combine this with innovative place management practices, among others BIDs, the Rotterdam Schouwburgplein Association and the Nieuwegein Area and placemaking cooperative Rijnhuizen (STIPO). And of course discuss experiences with the audience.

Safe Cities - how can placemaking help make our cities safer
Unsafe cities and public spaces are well-known challenges. Each young person has the right to live in a safe and livable urban environment. Placemaking has been applied successfully in different parts of the world in order to increase safety in public spaces by engaging citizens, municipalities, property owners and other actors to find new ways to reinvent and programme places that attract people and where they want to linger. The presentation and workshop will focus on various components of situational crime prevention, the nature of safety and the fundamental gender differences which will impact how placemaking can be applied. Further, the workshop will directly link to the practice of open source sharing of best placemaking practices and the inclusion of youth into urban planning with a special focus on safety and security.

Soft-power in urban design governance: what, when and who? [Urban Maestro]
The quality of urban areas is shaped by a complex combination of factors including formal regulations and policies.  These are blunt tools through which to establish a local culture of positive place making and have often been linked to the delivery of sub-standard developments.  Informal tools of urban design governance utilise the soft powers of government.  They place their users in the position of enablers, advocates or brokers rather than as regulators or direct investors in development.  They offer the potential for a place-focussed approach to design and development.
This workshop will examine the nature of these informal tools and some of the challenges for urban design governance.  It will explore three different scales of intervention – national, city-wide and local.  Collectively workshop participants will attempt to address the questions:
  • When are informal tools preferable to formal ones?
  • At what scale is urban design governance best delivered?
  • How should governmental and non-governmental actors interact to deliver urban design governance?

Wiki Tools
Michael Mehaffy (Future of Places Research Center) and Ward Cunningham (the inventor of Wiki) bring the Wiki approach to placemaking.

In this session Mehaffy and Cunningham are with us through skype to work on how to use their developing wiki platform (and associated pattern language document) as a case study of how we can build tools and toolkits to share and develop on an open-source platform.

And which tools specifically, e.g. placemaking tools, public space tools, process tools, finance tools, etc etc.

The goal of the workshop is to get feedback on the platform specifically, and discussion and collaboration on this topic more broadly

To prepare for the session we invite you to look at the short video of Michael en Ward explaining some of their ideas.
The draft paper on pattern language that will be central in this workshop is downloadable here.

21st Century Library
Limited Capacity seats available

On a trip to Montreal Nestor Mir Planells started reflecting on the concept of 21st century library. The librarian was left with a lot of questions on how to handle the transition to technology and delocalisation in the contemporary city. Will the 21st century library still be a book container? On the other hand, will we only find digital information? Who will create the knowledge? During Placemaking Week Europe 2019, La Marina de València will host Nestor’s prototype of the 21st century urban library.

How could we use walking to refeel and reimagine public spce for better placemaking?
The “use your feet” session invites you to experience walking & wandering as a way to read the city and as an approach of adding creativity to urban planning and design.
The experience of our everyday journeys and the extent to which we want to make those journeys on foot, are vital to our quality of life. Considering the diverse motivations, desires and decisions we make on our journeys will expand and unlock the interaction between street experience, placemaking and urban decision making.
A series of walking journeys and reflections unlock unique experiences of the city and the potential to improve that experience through urban planning and design.

Engaging citizens to create inclusive cultural interventions that improve wellbeing & unite communities: Case studies from Northern Ireland
Derry/Londonderry in Northern Ireland is a city that lies on the banks of the river Foyle, which historically has acted as a natural divide between two conflicted communities. As a result, the city turned its back on the river, diverting people towards the city-centre. Due to the isolation and darkness, over the last decade, areas around the Foyle riverfront have become synonymous with mental health issues and suicide. The ‘Our Future Foyle’ project aims to decrease the negative associations with these areas and improve overall wellbeing through the use of community designed architectural interventions. This presentation outlines a three-year active research and design project that uses an inclusive design approach to bring life to the banks of the river Foyle and ultimately help to improve wellbeing and unite communities.
We present our approach in consulting key community groups and engaging over 5,000 local residents. This has led to the development of a series of pop-up portable space concepts along the riverfront that have been co-designed with local people that act as a community response to improving wellbeing without medical stigma.

Placemaking for Emerging Leaders
A more participatory process is needed in order to address the challenges faced in public space. Beginning with methods of engagement this session discusses opportunities to reimagine the relationship between youth and public space. Young adults offer important insights, creativity, and stories of public space while also situating themselves as the next leaders of our society. At this exciting and powerful intersection, tools of placemaking are particularly impactful as they carry these insights into their future education and professions. How do we encourage opportunities of engagement for young adults in placemaking? This session includes the discussion of four international case studies in congruence with an interactive workshop.

Placemaking for Sustainable Change
This session looks at tackling urban challenges through different lenses - the practical interventions and policy implementations - towards sustainable change, with a particular focus on coastal cities around the globe. Experts with diverse experiences will share their contribution to improving sustainability and resilience in our cities - from waste management to climate mitigation, as well as a participatory perspective to reduce the effects of climate change.

María Ruiz de Gopegui Aramburu shares the insights from an extensive study on the climate adaptation policies of 100 waterfront cities, and their relation to resiliency design for the built environment and public space.

Laska Nenova will talk about how placemaking, tactical urbanism and artistic urban interventions about waste management, recycling culture and littering prevention have the potential to raise awareness for sustainable change, and impact behavior in day-to-day life in cities around Europe.

Anna W. I. Au presents the case study on Inner Harbour Area of Macau SAR, where at least a super typhoon is expected per year due to climate change. Despite the catastrophe brought by typhoons, there is an opportunity to integrate top-down driven redesign with more tactical placemaking interventions for mitigation.

We will talk about the challenges of climate change, and aim to unravel how a more co-creative approach is necessary to tackle such a complex challenge ahead. We will study the experience of La Marina de Valencia and end with a walkshop around the area, where potentials for concrete urban actions might be spotted.

Seven Square Endeavour
There are a number of big cultural squares in the world where a variety of partners take the lead in using placemaking and place management techniques to improve the square/area in a structural way. Schouwburgplein Rotterdam with the Seven Square Endeavour program is one of them. Bryant Park in New York is famous. La Marina is an upcoming example. Together with experts from Rotterdam (a.o. Karen van der Spek, Jeroen de Leeuw, Emiel Arends), New York (a.o. Jeffrey Shumaker, Ethan Kent), Valencia (a.o. Ramon Marrades) we explore the secrets of the success of working on cultural squares. We look at placemaking, place management and link to creative bureaucracy and other subjects. In Rotterdam cultural and sustainable parties took the lead, in Valencia the government, in New York market parties. What would happen if we’d combine their business cases in one square. Could this lead to the optimal business case and place management models. We come with a call for proposals for squares who want to join the frontrunners.

TOOLTEST DAY #1: Space Sensation Workshop
Limited Capacity seats available

The ‘Tooltest Day’ initiative is envisioned as a platform for placemaking tools development / sharing in a network-based environment, part of Placemaking Europe.  During Placemaking Week Europe 2019 the first edition of the initiative will be realised via the 'Space Sensation' tool, developed by Mindspace collective (Budapest, Hungary). This session focuses on the execution of a 'Space Sensation' workshop during which the participants will experiment with the capabilities of the tool. Its main aim is to get people into an open mindset, a receptive state by getting connected with their surrounding urban environment. With the exercises participants can discover various new perspectives of the urban environment.

This workshop can be also joined independently by participants who are not able to attend the Placemaking Week Europe in Valencia. Through specially organised local events everyone, willing to take part in the workshop, will have the possibility to join. This opportunity represents the very essence of the 'Tooltest Day' initiative. In order to get involved even from distance write us at: placemaking.tooltestday@gmail.com or join the interactive online webinar on June 5th from 12:00 (CET) via https://hangouts.google.com/group/wyYdxzF3K6Mxx6am8.

They are spaces to experiment with new policies, co-design and test new methods to tackle specific urban challenges and for exploring new governance models under outside the conventional R&I laboratories.
These urban living labs deal with multifaceted urban issues and are tools to maintain science-policy-society co-creation. Due to their territorial anchoring they are highly context specific. As van Steenbergen and Frantzeskaki showed, ULL can be instruments to (unintentionally) contribute to placemaking by connecting between (social) innovation and urban development. Hence, links between places (as well as non-human living entities) and people are generated, maintained and/or re-shaped, which may foster a sense of place and in turn urban sustainability transformation through these changing spaces. In this workshop, we will (1) exchange experiences of the participants in ULLs connected to place making; (2) identify requirements to ensure longer-term impacts of ULL and capacity building, and (3) reflect on the significance and needs for actions. This session will be organised as an activity of JPI Urban Europe’s AGORA (https://jpi-urbaneurope.eu/agora/).

Edible Placemaking: Food, the world's first placemaker
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Eating is a multi-sensorial experience. We don't only taste food through our mouth, but also through smells, sights, sounds and other embodied feelings. The places where we eat play a vital role in how and what we eat and taste. Just as different cultures have different rules regarding what can or cannot be eaten, there are also social norms that tell us where we should eat and where we should not. The "Edible Placemaking" session invites you to experience the impact that places have on our tasting experiences, and how placemaking can be driven through food. We will taste a set of ingredients and products and discuss how different physical, social and mental elements shape our perception of food. To wrap-up the session, we will ideate together possible future alternative places, and food experiences in La Marina de Valencia.

This workshop is organized by KM ZERO Open Innovation Hub.
KM ZERO Open Innovation Hub is the safe environment to develop pioneering ideas and sustainable solutions for the food ecosystem. Our multidisciplinary team and unique set of tools help organizations discover opportunities and find or create solutions to the challenges they are facing.

The Busking Project
Like biologists on a trip away from the lab and into the field, we’ll be taking placemakers into the ecosystem of La Marina de Valencia to see – and meet! – some of the finest street performers in town. It’ll be a casual experience seeing street performers enliven a space where busking is usually not allowed. With zero infrastructure, management or oversight, see how street performers can completely transform a space, and hear direct from them why they busk, and how they’d be willing to work with placemakers.

This busking experience contributes to the understanding of how busking fits into the placemaking movement; evidence for its benefits for cities; and how urbanists, BIDs, councils and cultural organisations can easily engender a positive, healthy, impactful busking ecosystem by encouraging the best performers to perform, without hyper-regulation.

The session is hosted by The Busking Project, Vivian Doumpa and Musicarte Urbano, the local street musicians' and artists' association.

Creative Bureaucracy: The local authorities, your partner in placemaking?
Most placemaking initiatives have to deal with local authorities. A good and effective relationship with them might boost the work of placemakers. In our workshop we want to focus on three aspects of authorities that might make them real creative bureaucracies: First the potential rules and regulations which deal with placemaking activities.
Secondly the ‘inner life’ of the civil servants within the city administration. How do they operate ‘as human beings’ in their subjective and personal preferences towards the outside world including placemaking initiatives?
Thirdly, how do they deal with digital communication like social media to interact with placemaking actors? The short presentations in this workshop Creative Bureaucracies 2 focus on the change within the city administration for placemakers like Anna (Uppsala) and Timo (Helsinki).
The presentations of Papa Bella (Valencia) Kate (South Africa/Greece) and Miguel (Madrid), Laura (comparative study) and Alexandra (Athens) show how policies on local employment programme / intercultural understanding / solidarity economy / inclusive neighborhoods, can be amplified by a more creative bureaucracy or can provoke change in the city administrations.

From story to city wide strategy
Cities are made by the people that live in them, their landscapes are forever changing around stories of our daily lives. How do some of these stories turn into more structural tools that can help actively shape and better our urban environments? Could we state that a single story can change an entire city? The ways we share our stories have also shifted, for example through online platforms that emerge facilitating urban change. In this session we will explore these layers of placemaking, from stories to city wide strategies. After a number of pitches from the speakers listed below, we will start an open discussion in order to exchange insights from all participants.

Growing with the City: Child-friendly places transformation from micro to macro
In this session we will explore what is the spine of the stories of parents, practitioners and city strategists when they work towards spaces for children. Our session will reflect upon the storyline that allows different actors of the “child-friendly cities” concept to share a common understanding on how to co create places “of children”, and not “for children”. During the session the participants are invited to share their knowledge and perspective and to grow their way of thinking from the experience of being a parent in the city, to neighbourhood transformation and city-wide strategy, and all the way back to the start. Participants will take back home shared insights on how to think holistically about inclusive placemaking around children and will get familiarised with the “Think-Pair-Share” method using „20 good reasons for space transformation“ tool.

Project for Public Spaces is one of the leading voices behind the Innovation District concept. In this workshop Nate Storring from PPS will provide an overview of the theory, history, and current state of Innovation Districts.
Three cities—The Hague, Rotterdam and Valencia—will share how they work on innovation districts, their successes and their challenges to becoming a “true” innovation district. These challenges may be recognisable for other cities around the world. In an interactive discussion, we will work with participants to identify strategies to tackle these common innovation district obstacles.

Placemaking is taking a stand. Time for a social and ethical charter.
A significant risk or a least an often seen misunderstanding of Placemaking is that it becomes a 'neutral' tool for area development, livelihood enhancement and economic valorisation and at the same time a device that greatly complies with approaches of deregulation, privatisation and 'enablement' in an era of public debt and austerity. But Placemaking comes with a responsibility. In this light, the workshop aims to trigger debate on these negative threats to place-making and to substantiate Placemaking as a social and political practice.

We will start with a short introduction and present & discuss some cases where Placemaking is at risk of contributing to social exclusion becoming a mere economic and marketing tool.

Emily Silverman will describe experiences in Jerusalem, from Palestinian East Jerusalem, Ultra-Orthodox Jewish and central city neighborhoods. In smaller groups the participants then tap into their own experiences and map out the risks related to an unreflected and naïve Placemaking practice. What could be relevant elements if we were to draw up a social and ethical charter for Placemaking? Join us for a very relevant, fun and sharp workshop!

Real Estate meets Placemaking - How do we change to Place Led Development? Four tools for the toolbox, learning by doing
Although often placemaking and real estate development seem separate worlds, or sometimes even direct adversaries, we believe they should not be. Placemaking should be integrated and interwoven into the real estate development process. This is what we over the last decade started to call "Place Led Development". It takes placemaking from one time and temporary interventions to a more structural fundament under urban development. Placemaking should be integrated and interwoven into the real estate development process. This is what we call "Place Led Development". From placemaking as one-time temporary interventions to placemaking as a structural fundament under urban development.

Unfolding the Dilemmas of Public Space
Urban public spaces fulfil important societal functions and shape many of the characteristics of cities and urban areas. However, there are a number of dilemmas involved in their development and maintenance. An urban dilemma is defined as two or more competing goals, such as stakeholder interests and related strategies, which potentially fail to achieve their aims when implementing one strategy hampers or prevents the achievement of another. In this sense, dilemmas articulate the challenges and wicked issues involved in liveable urban development. Regarding urban public spaces, for instance, typical crossings of concerns are related to everyone’s right to the city, climate change actions and how to cater for safety and security without promoting increasingly exclusive spaces. Additionally, all these functions, dynamics, characteristics and how public spaces are formally and informally organized in general in urban areas determines if a given city is open or closed. The aims of this session is to unfold dilemmas of public space and the interrelations between placemaking and design and subjective/objective safety in public spaces. The relevance of placemaking to address the dilemma, as well as identify open questions to be addressed by research and innovation regarding inclusion, climate change adaptation, increasing safety and better policies will be highlighted in a workshop setting.

TOOLTEST Day #2: Concept & Further Development
The execution of the first 'Tooltest Day' during Placemaking Week Europe is a great opportunity to involve more people globally to the conference and use the momentum to make more people familiar with the initiative. In the long-term, 'Tooltest Day' will depend on the freewill dedication of time and effort in favor of gaining practical knowledge, fostering individual development and building professional networks. The initiative can also be used as a source of inspiration for actual ongoing research and/or development projects by participants if individuals decide to use it in this way.

During this session the case of 'Tooltest Day' will be presented by introducing its concept, showcasing the achieved results and discussing the future development steps and ambitions. The initiative is in its inception phase so everyone who is interested in the prospect of learning more and/or contributing to the development of such a platform is kindly invited to participate.

In order to achieve its goals the session will include a presentation of the Tooltest Day's concept and the achieved results during its first realisation (15 mins), reflective talk of initiative's potentials through the case of 'Emotional Mapping' by Zora Paulinova (25 mins) and interactive World Cafe Workshop (80 mins), lead by the Community Placemaking collective (Jerusalem, Israel), aiming at involving all attendees in order to reflect on the Tooltest Day's concept, possibilities, attracting potential supporters and further directions of development. If you are interested, get involved!

(*) This session will also be streamed online so everyone who organised a local workshop (and not only) will be able to join!

Designing for Inclusion: take a different perspective
We are all different people, with different needs, capabilities and wishes. How can we do justice to diversity, ensure equal access and work on inclusive places? And to complicate things further, the concept of place as well as the words public and placemaking have different notions in different communities and countries. In this workshop we are going to play with multiple perspectives. What does it mean to be outside as a 15 year old boy? how does a university lecturer use the campus space, and how a student, or a resident of nearby neighbourhoods? What is public space to orthodox religious women? What could be their wishes and considerations? After brief introductions by Jacqueline Bleicher and Minouche Besters you will hear three different perspectives: Yaara Rosner-Manor on the orthodox neighbourhood of Jerusalem, Roya Shokoohi on the Campus of Groningen University and Jacqueline on youth in London.

Innovative financial models for placemaking
We all know that placemaking needs funding, and we all know that it brings many direct and indirect values. But still, placemaking for many is a new phenomenon that does not always fit into the existing systems of urban development yet. As a result, placemakers often find it hard to generate funding for their placemaking activities. How do we fund placemaking? Which innovative financial models can we use, or should we develop? How can we make sure that involved communities capture the value created by placemaking? And how can we scale up to larger Placemaking Funds? In this session, we will discuss these questions based on two cases: Growfunding and the Citymaker Fund. Growfunding is a civic crowdfunding and matchfunding platform based in Brussels. Since 2016, it was launched as an independent spin-off. Over the past 5 years, Growfunding launched over 140 projects. Last year, the average success rate was 91%. The mission is to build the city together, using an open bottom-up approach, and by creating synergies between different networks.

The challenges and opportunities of the informal tools of urban design governance [Urban Maestro]
The Urban Maestro team are exploring the use of informal tools in the governance of urban design across Europe. The project is founded on the contention that soft-power enables a more intelligent and nuanced approach to the shaping of places than the alternative, hard regulatory instruments.
In this workshop some of the challenges and opportunities presented by the use of soft power to positively shape urban areas will be examined.  Notable amongst these are the politics of urban design governance – how can political support be achieved and a culture of design engendered – the relationship between design governance and the finance of projects – how can finance mechanisms be used to encourage ‘good’ urban design behaviour – and the transferability of soft power mechanisms – how can we learn from each other. 
Through presentations and debate the workshop participants will seek to address three key linked questions:
  • Bottom up or top down, how can a local culture of high quality urban design be secured?
  • Are financial and design governance tools compatible?
  • How contextually specific are the informal tools of urban design governance?

The book compiles of good practices, stories, criteria, tools and lessons learned from different contexts around the world, aiming to serve as a guide towards the construction of child-friendly cities, with a special focus on the Urban95 group: toddlers and children aged 0-3, caregivers and pregnant women. During the book launch session, contributors to the book from around the world will join us to present their insights on the topic, while the editorial team will share their experiences of approaching the child-friendly city from the placemaking perspective in theory and in practice. The book launch is the event that culminates the discussions and tactical activities that took place throughout the whole Placemaking Week Europe 2019 in the theme of child-friendly cities and placemaking.

The Journal of Public Space
The Journal of Public Space has been established in 2015 by City Space Architecture in partnership with UN-Habitat as an open access resource aimed at spreading public knowledge on public space. Started as an academic journal, it is currently willing to host also contents from professionals, NGOs, activists and artists who are actively engaged in the process of making public space a relevant asset for cities and communities. During the session we will launch a call for papers for a special issue collecting stories from all those affiliated to Placemaking Europe, to be published in 2020. We will also discuss how Placemaking Europe and The Journal of Public Space can cooperate structurally in period articles in the Journal, included in a dedicated section which will have section editors. This session is the opportunity to know about a global research effort aimed at defining public space as one of the priorities for the human future of our cities.

Underused Spaces
In this collaborative session, participants will experience underused contexts from Spain, Hungary, and France with specific example of suburban garden, rooftops, train stations, and market hall. Moreover, the nature of the session will be interactive, thought provoking, and discussion oriented to seek answers towards these cases. Eulalie Blanc and Zélia Bobillier-Chaumont from DVTup will speak to “getting the local community to go from “attendant / enthusiast” to the role of “leader”. This is at stake to make sure a place dynamic continues after the placemaking facilitators are gone, especially in low-income neighbourhoods. This talk aims to discuss the challenges of community engagement in the longer term that may be faced beyond placemaking projects, based on DVTup 3 years long pilot project in Aubervilliers, France.
Szilvia Zsargo from MindSpace present content about revitalizing experimentation of a not-so-well functioning market hall and its surroundings with bottom-up initiatives - experiences from Rákóczi square, Budapest.
Alice Lunardon leads an initiative across Europe to evolve train stations into hubs of mobility, services for citizens and travelers (not only shops and luxe restaurants but also social enterprises for example, able to profit while developing communities and protecting the environment), but also as "circular infrastructures" able to reuse and recycle the energy they produce and consume.
Marta Pérez Castañer, Fran Latorre, and Juan Carlos stimulate a full senses experience - sight, sound, hearing - to create an ambient terrace experience and to investigate the authentic right for all tenants/users to enjoy building rooftop to increase quality of life in the Spanish context with the intent to contribute to sustainability for the long-term, with the intention of generating over time the consolidation and economic prosperity of these places.

How could we use walking to re-feel and reimagine public space for better placemaking?
The “use your feet” session invites you to experience walking & wandering as a way to read the city and as an approach of adding creativity to urban planning and design.
The experience of our everyday journeys and the extent to which we want to make those journeys on foot, are vital to our quality of life. Considering the diverse motivations, desires and decisions we make on our journeys will expand and unlock the interaction between street experience, placemaking and urban decision making.
A series of walking journeys and reflections unlock unique experiences of the city and the potential to improve that experience through urban planning and design.

DeMOS The Game
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

DeMOS_The game is a site specific performative game by UrbanDig Project and Odysseas Velentzas that begun its journey in LABOURGAMES. It intends to function as an alternative educational model to acquire and cultivate the “soft skills” of participation and collective decision making. Its main aim is to constitute a unique methodology for the investigation and the processing of issues that concern already established or random diverse communities –while connecting and having fun! The everyday life in the city is the inspiration. For the game, the city becomes a big floor-map that functions as a board. An urban imaginary walk and its unpredictable character becomes the condition in which the players investigate a large palette of issues -from practical issues of everyday life to wonderings that start from abstract concepts. This enjoying condition of collective training and search does not end here: A performative live-art experience creates an experimental deepening attempt that refers both to the mind and the emotions, to the spirit and the body, to the collective and the individual.

Valencia Site Visit Group 2: Markets of Valencia with Crearqció
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

This tour will depart from Placa del Baró de Cortés, 46004 València.
If you have any questions, please call Julia Pineda (+34 618 014 998).

A pleasant and exciting day exploring Valencia's markets and learn more about the city as a case study. This day is a wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in local knowledge.

El Mercado de Ruzafa will be the first stop, a market whose community-based identity is defined by its local everyday consumers. From Ruzafa the group will head to el Mercado de Colon, where a previously local market was recently reconverted into a leisure space for the Valencian higher-middle class. The tour continues in Plaza Redonda where city centre touristification processes have caused the replacement of traditional local commerces. After Plaza Redonda, the team from Crearqció will introduce you to La Tapineria, an urban space where new commercial strategies are being experimented since the real-estate crises. Finally the tour will end in Mercado Central, not only an architectural gem of the Valencian Art Nouveau heritage but also one of the biggest and most visited markets in the Spanish city.

* If time allows, the tour will also include a visit to Mossen Sorell, the example of a failed Gourmet market. In this case, it will be interesting to draw a comparison with La Tira de Contar, a market offering agricultural products from the valencian Huerta.
