Get Involved

As the placemaking movement is taking a big step in its evolution, we are thrilled with your interest in taking part in its growth. To succeed in our mission we need your help. We require active commitment to be a part of our collective impact network.

Community Guidelines

PlacemakingX isn’t about making money or networking but rather working with like-minded individuals to drive large-scale culture change to put place at the heart of the public discourse. These guidelines were created to ensure that we are working together to achieve social change.

You believe in the power of collective impact.

You’re not a rock or an island. You aim to create meaningful connections and work with people from different backgrounds, disciplines, and communities, and you understand how important unlikely partnerships are to successful placemaking.

You seek the community as the expert.

You understand that placemaking is a process, not an outcome. When working in a place, you always put the community first and understand that they are the expert.

You think holistically about place.

You understand how various (sometimes unexpected) pieces fit together to create a great public destination. The term “silo-busting” gets your feet tapping.

You are respectful.

You value other people’s opinions and cultures. In your conversations, you listen and speak from “I”.
