Partners for Places: Scaling the Impact of Placemaking Globally

Commitment by

Project for Public Spaces

In 2016, the Project for Public Spaces (PPS) committed to expanding placemaking globally by launching a number of demonstration projects that will pilot low-cost, short-term improvements and attract more people to public spaces. Over the next three years, PPS will forge partnerships to implement these “Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper” design interventions, while complementing the public space upgrades with a comprehensive program of events and activities ranging from outdoor festivals and film screenings to cultural programs and exhibitions featuring local talent. By promoting a community-driven, place-led approach, the PPS will be able to fundamentally change how residents shape their communities and the public spaces they share, while addressing the lack of access to quality public spaces that persists in cities across the globe, ultimately impacting more than 1,000,000 people.
