Welcome to the wonderful world
of placemaking.

Village Well is one of the world’s leading placemaking organisations. We passionately believe in creating a more just and regenerative world with more inclusive, resilient and thriving communities and places. We act as a conscious and purpose-driven organisation but think like a movement towards creating a fair and kind world. For nearly 30 years we have worked with more than 2000 places and communities, from helping to make Melbourne one of the most liveable cities, to revitalising small towns and communities around the world.

 

At Village Well we believe that the wisdom lies in the community and that empowered citizens and stakeholders collectively are the best placemakers. It takes many hands to create a place and a participatory process involving diverse people and stakeholders allows for more authentic and resilient outcomes.

 

We are renowned for successfully bringing together innovative commerce and governance, transformative and inspiring engagement processes, creative place activation ideas and compelling place visions, loved by stakeholders and the larger community.
