Supporting Event - "Everything's in PLACE" Asia Placemaking Convention

Is space a limitation, or a way out?

Often stereotyped as “crowded” and “densely populated”, is it a myth or reality that space scarcity is the top 1 constraint for community ventures in Hong Kong? With a little twist, together we can transform ordinary spaces into well-loved, inclusive places that amplify social impacts in all walks!

Aspiring to celebrate local community efforts and bring together placemaking advocates from various Asian metropolises, Very Hong Kong will host a 2-day Asia Placemaking Convention titled "Everything's in PLACE" in Tai Kwun this July. Nine practitioners from Hong Kong, Shanghai, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea and Malaysia will gather in town to share their project implementation experience, and together, open dialogues in developing context-based community-powered placemaking strategies. Another convention’s highlight is the “Hong Kong 100” Placemaking Archive Exhibition on the Laundry Steps, which will feature 100 local placemaking initiatives championed by groups and individuals, across districts and scales.

Join us to be part of this placemaking movement in Asia!
