The Jerusalem “Making Places” program has been expanding each year since 2016, and now includes over 70 community initiated projects in neighborhoods throughout the city. Images of these projects can be viewed here. The program was jumpstarted following workshops with PPS with the Urban Clinic a team of student interns (see here), and is now brilliantly led by the municipality’s economic development company (EDEN) and the Community department and managed by the super-creative and invested DY planning consultants, Dana Gazy and Ytav Buseira.
Each year, the city releases an annual call for proposals to implement and budget, and community groups submit their visions of place transformation, including place-based activities. Images for many of these projects, and the placemaking leaders behind them, can be seen here.
