Placemaking isn't...

A keynote I am currently writing has got me thinking on what placemaking isn't, a a way to define what it is.  

Placemaking isn’t...

Putting a sculpture into a square. That’s public art.

Putting a building into a city. That’s architecture.

Putting a procession down a street. That’s live art.

Putting on events outside. That’s a festival.

Putting art on buildings. That’s street art.

Putting a workshop in a community. That’s community art.

Putting a bench on a street. That’s urban design.
