Town Team Movement is excited to be supporting the global Porch Placemaking Week. People from all around the world will be getting involved and it’s a great chance to do something positive and fun!
The past year has redefined how we use our neighbourhoods and public spaces. Whilst some of us remain physically distant and others adjust to a post-COVID world, we can all find new ways to remain socially connected.
Porch Placemaking is about taking action and bringing people together (from a safe distance) by activating your front porch (or balcony, front yard, stoop or driveway) between September 27th and October 3rd. Simply put, the project is about connecting with neighbours through small scale, tactical projects.
There are a number of ways to join the movement:
- Get your Town Team or street involved
- Promote to other people and organisations in your network
- Share your project and pictures on the global placemaking map and
- Inspire others by sharing your project in our Facebook group.
