Symposium on

Transformative Placemaking

Symposium on Transformative Placemaking focused on Placemaking as a way to improve neighborhoods and thus the community and region in which they are located, and how Placemaking animates public and private spaces, rejuvenates structures and streetscapes. The Symposium speakers included: a Placemaking introduction from Diane Davidson former Director at Center for Transportation Analysis, Oak Ridge National Lab, review of ETCDC Placemaking projects by ETCDC Studio Director Leslie Fawaz, impact of the ETCDC Burlington Enhancement Plan by Dr. Dasha Lundy, and examples of Public Art in Placemaking were presented by Debbie Sharp, Director of Knoxville’s Office of Neighborhoods.
