kNOw One Place Round-up

Date of Resource:

kNOw One Place (Sept 2022) Scotland’s first creative placemaking forum was an ambitious, future-thinking discussion on how communities can use creativity to lead the development of their places hosted by The Stove in Dumfries. 

Through a mixture of open space discussion and expert reflection over two days of activity, it brought people together from public, private, independent, and charitable sectors to share and co-create an agenda for creativity and placemaking for the future. 

Over one hundred people attended from local, regional, national and international locations over two days of activity.

The values, principles and delivery challenges of creative placemaking work within communities were explored through the themes of: 

People and Power, Society and Activism, Communities, Space (Physical and Conversational) and Creative Practice. 

The discussions and learning that came out of this event were captured through note-taking, recordings, and documentation, and written up into a summary for future development.
