A multi-faceted approach to creating vibrant public spaces capitalizing on the community’s assets, inspiration and potential.

This free interactive workshop invites participants to bring along ideas, photos and sketches of projects and problems for input from the brains trust. We’ll work together to imagine spaces which are both practical and creative and bust the myth that different is more expensive.

Facilitated by Hillary Lambert- Portfolio Manager of Curtin University’s award-winning Place Activation program. Hillary’s knowledge in place making evolved from her early involvement in some of Perth city’s first forays in the field, with the rebirth of the Cultural Centre and Forrest Place, to the past three years growing Curtin’s Place Activation program.

Presenters:
Rodney Glick is listed as amongst Australia’s top 50 most collectable contemporary artists. His work includes large-scale public art projects and he has designed and built homes in Australia and Indonesia with a focus on environmental sustainability.

Luis Puig is the City of Fremantle’s Economic Development Coordinator responsible for the delivery of strategic interventions to improve the public realm which are part of the council’s place activation agenda; low-scale eclectic and colourful micro level projects carefully crafted and implemented to invigorate the public realm and support the city’s revitalisation. These projects often challenge dull and outdated policies making us find creative solutions for unusual challenges.

Jean-Paul Horré is a photo-journalist and parklet designer. Jean-Paul focuses on people-centric projects celebrating what is good and unique about humanity in his photos and on small-scale interventions in cities to make them more people friendly. Jean-Paul has recently built a community funded solar powered parklet (a mini public space) on Wray Ave, Fremantle, which put people’s needs in public spaces at the forefront of the design.
