INSPIRING AND ENGAGING
MATTERS TO US
We believe collaborative and creative processes lead to the best outcomes. Inspiring and engaging people’s hearts and minds matters to us.
Our transformative tools and practices create a more fun and engaging process for all. We don’t shy away from working with conflict, diverse stakeholders and tricky situations – we usually find the best and most creative breakthroughs happen in such instances.
Together, our visioning and strategic thinking helps create well-loved, people-friendly environments with renewed vitality and a strong sense of place.
ENGAGEMENT AND FACILITATION
PLACEMAKING FRAMEWORKS AND STRATEGIES
Village Well’s creative placemaking approach is based on a holistic exploration of places and their communities – we study the daily life and experience in places; engage with communities to understand their stories, perspectives and aspirations; and consider local and global trends
We co-design, facilitate and build strategic and purposeful partnerships. We bring an array of people with unique perspectives together to workshop and inspire innovative ideas, scenarios and solutions for a place.
We bring together the wisdom of the community, stakeholder perspectives and aspirations and place insights to generate a compelling shared vision for a place.
We prepare tailored strategies to guide place planning and development, and ultimately, activate and realise the shared vision for a place.
Regenerative Placemaking and
The New Local
We believe placemaking in the future needs to be regenerative – putting back more than we take out. It is about the whole within the place. How can a placemaking project positively contribute to its community and the natural environment – how does it benefit the whole system, the neighbourhood, the mainstreet, the ground plane and the most vulnerable.
