A pilot project to develop placemaking as a permanent municipally supported program. After piloting two successful placemaking projects, Halifax Municipality now supports up to 5 placemaking initiatives every year through an established and funded municipal program. You can check out that program here: http://www.halifax.ca/culture/CommunityArts/Placemaking.php
Placemaking is the collaborative process of re-imagining and re-invigorating a common space placemaking builds the fabric of community. Over the course of this 6-8 month process, community members get to know each other, discovering one another’s gifts and develops human, social, cultural capital.
