Placemaking, inclusive placemaking, creative placemaking, placekeeping…what do they all mean? Why is it so important to engage existing communities in designing the future of shared spaces? Join us to explore why preserving cultural memories can be so powerful in helping future spaces thrive.

This conversation is a production of the Jessie Ball duPont Fund and The Jaxson Magazine. Launched by Modern Cities in association with WJCT Public Broadcasting, The Jaxson is a multimedia project dedicated to urbanism and culture on Florida’s First Coast.
