Panel: Rebuilding Trust: Placemaking in the Central and Eastern European Context

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A new generation of placemaking has arrived for Central and Eastern Europe.

As younger people begin to see public spaces in a new light, public attitudes that once deemed common spaces as belonging to nobody are fading away. In this session we will explore how the region is taking on a role at the cutting edge of the placemaking movement.

PPS has assembled a panel of practicing placemakers coming from vastly diverse professional backgrounds—NGOs, foundations, municipal organizations, academia, publishing, and independent artists and researchers. Join us as we explore the shared legacy, successes and challenges to creating lively, authentic, and inclusive public spaces in the Central and Eastern European context.
