Let's get together for conversation and activities that recognize and strengthen the public spaces of Greater Victoria (BC, Canada) while building community. Our shared spaces are important. Plazas, streets, courtyards, walkways, landscaped parks and other places where we move and interact change us and the nature of our city.

This Meetup group has grown out of The Places Project, an urban discovery walk series, and diverse community conversations about the value of Placemaking.

Placemaking is a process for working together to shape our public spaces. Rooted in community-based participation, Placemaking involves the planning, design, management and programming of shared use spaces. More than just designing spaces, Placemaking brings together diverse people (including professionals, elected officials, residents, and businesses) to improve a community’s cultural, economic, social and ecological situation.

This Meetup group is designed to encourage online conversations, in-person discussions, and on-site events that change our shared public spaces.
