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.
