Calling thought leaders with the will to drive creativity and innovation across the placemaking disciplines…

PLACEmaking is an editorially-led, analytical publication that provides a candid overview of the key issues facing placemakers.

Detailed case studies offer insight into the success of innovative placemaking schemes currently being designed and delivered internationally, supported by stakeholder commentary.

PLACEmaking was created to develop the work of RUDI (Resource for Urban Development International), an organisation and membership community created in 1989 at the Joint Centre for Urban Design, Oxford Brookes University, UK, a leading centre of interdisciplinary thinking about place and movement. It highlights the innovative strategies and initiatives that are working to create resilient communities.

Developing practical skills for 'Big Society' planning & design

Well delivered community planning and design is critical for providing the new localism and community engagement required by the Coalition Government for its 'Big Society'.

This one day masterclass, led by the UK's leading community planning specialist and author Nick Wates provides the opportunity for participants to enhance their own ability to involve local people in planning, design and development issues and devise a community planning strategy.

Comments by those who attended the past masterclasses included:

"Good size of group, good to start with activity (mock up), and Bexhill case study was very useful."
