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.
