Teams will be given 24 hours to deliver a temporary Public Space/activity that enriches the space, making it more alive and people friendly, and (most importantly) makes people smile.
Your team will be issued:

  • One Public Space

  • The 2019 placemaking challenge theme (TBA)

  • Three props

  • A basic budget to cover some expenses



  • Your activation/place must be created between 9 am Saturday, October 19th and 9 am Sunday, October 20th - with the activation/place live from 9 am on Sunday 20th of October. 

  • You can use any resources you have available.

  • You must include all the required props and themes supplied.

  • You must have one team leader who will be the first point of contact.

  • Your team needs to consist of 2 or more people.

  • Your activity/place must be inclusive of all ages.

  • After the challenge, the activation/place has to be removed (making good of the site)
