Placemaking: the state of the nation? Made in Canada Survey
What’s the state of placemaking in Canada? How robust is advocacy around public space? What’s working in your local community? What’s not? How do you think things could be improved?
These are a few of the questions we’re hoping you might be able to help us answer. The VPSN is working with a number of partner organizations to gauge the “the state of the nation” in terms of the barriers and opportunities that exist for placemaking and public space advocacy in Canada. We want to identify ways to strengthen local, community-based placemaking, while also exploring ways to enable and enrich collaboration across Canada. Some of this will inform the Made in Canada event we’re working on, but it will also be used to advance placemaking and public space advocacy more broadly.
We are hoping you could take a few moments to share your thoughts and experiences dealing with placemaking projects and public space advocacy. We’ve prepared a short questionnaire that should take no more than 5-10 minutes to complete. It will give you a chance to identify key barriers, opportunities and priorities for placemaking in your town or city, and cross-country.
