City of Kwinana staff workshop with David Engwicht

City of Kwinana Staff will have an opportunity to learn in-person from David Engwicht, one of the world’s best and most innovative placemaking practitioners. David has over 30 years’ experience in this area, his books are used as university texts, he’s presented at TEDx, is highly regarded by the Project for Public Spaces (the world’s peak placemaking organisation), and more recently developed the 7 Day Makeover (some really incredible community-led placemaking projects I highly recommend you check out).

He’s entertaining, challenging, and inspiring.

We’ll be running this workshop in two parts: a lunchtime learning (this session), followed immediately after by a deeper dive.
