So what is Crowdsourced Placemaking?

Well…

As the mob at Cool Town Studios explain….

Crowdsourced placemaking is the act of taking development traditionally performed by real estate institutions and sourcing it to a large, undefined community with shared values in the form of an open call, to transform the places we find ourselves into the places where we live, as ‘places of the soul’ that uplift and help us connect to each other.

So from the other side of the world we can see a video trailing the reincarnation of a downtown, and performing the all important act of linking one side of the Main Street to the other…

One of the things we should promote is the organisation behind that block improvement. You can find them at http://www.gooakcliff.org

Food for thought indeed!
