Placemaking Week 2017 took place in the fall of 2017 in Amsterdam. Building upon the momentum of 2016’s successful event in Vancouver, Project for Public Spaces, in partnership with STIPO, The City at Eye Level, Placemaking Plus and Pakhuis de Zwijger hosted the placemaking event in Amsterdam!
Placemaking Week is a great opportunity to learn by doing, connect and reconnect with placemakers from all around the world with different backgrounds, and of course, get empowered and inspired.

The bulk of the event was held at Pakhuis de Zwijger, to host a dynamic set of sessions and workshops, where attendees developed and shared concrete strategies for advancing placemaking locally and globally. The event brought together 400+ placemakers to learn, network, experience real public spaces, and support a citywide campaign for great places.
