JANE'S WALK AMSTERDAM 2018 (4th May,2018)
Amsterdam is the city of cycling and full of lively streets and people. Based on the ideas of Jane Jacob and her principles, here at Placemaking Plus we work with a "Plus" that makes it possible to transform places from livable to loving. "During Jane's Walk 2018 we would like to visit the streets of Amsterdam Oud-West on another show you where you communicate with the local population and have a conversation Peter Groenendaal has been organizing Jane's Walks in Amsterdam for many years and he will do this again this year as a member of our Placemaking Plus team.
At Placemaking Plus we are passionate about Placemaking and hope that you are or will eventually become. Turning a public space into a pleasant place for the neighborhood, Placemaking Plus is an Amsterdam based organization that mainly focuses on Placemaking. From Placegame (a tool with which the community can easily evaluate a public space) with all stakeholders from the neighborhood, joint implementation of the Placegame results and Place Management Plans to the formation of Place Management teams, we investigate all aspects of the " city lavors ". Jane Jacob has rightly said that cities only have something to offer everyone, if they are made by everyone and we help everyone to create our Amsterdam together.
The Oud-West district has a great mix of cultures and economic levels that provide a vibrant neighborhood. It's nice to explore the chic streets near the Vondelpark and the exotic grocers at De Clercqstraat and Kinkerstraat. Many students and young creatives can also be found in this neighborhood as well as families with small children. We want to introduce you to the streets of Oud West in Amsterdam in a different way; where you can communicate with locals, have a conversation about how they use placemaking to give semi-public spaces their own twist.
