Placemaking Week Europe 2019 is Europe’s biggest conference and festival celebrating the impact of placemaking on the urban fabric. Approximately 400 placemakers, a diverse mixture of professionals working on creating a better public space and city at eye level, will meet in Valencia from June 12th-15th. A variety of placemakers, politicians, civil servants, developers, big and small companies will share best practices, create new knowledge in interactive workshops, accelerate existing and new projects and celebrate the growing contribution of placemaking in creating better cities.

During the four days of activities, placemakers from all over Europe and beyond will not just share their own stories. Together we’ll spend part of the conference, learning from, and working with local challenges in La Marina as well as in and around the city of Valencia. They will be testing, adapting and implementing placemaking tools for future use.

Placemaking Week Europe 2019 is a unique way to get to know professional peers and the city of Valencia through the lense of placemaking.

This year Placemaking Week will revolve around five main topics:

(1) Placemaking for Innovation

(2) Creative Bureaucracy

(3) Open-source sharing from placemaking practice

(4) Future-proof cities through placemaking

(5) Waterfront cities


Placemaking Week Europe 2019 is organized by La Marina de Valencia, STIPO and Placemaking Europe with the special participation of the Creative Bureaucracy Festival.
