We Make Places are specialists in community engagement and creative production, embedding artistic practice within communities as a learning, sharing and communal activity. We help individuals & communities to develop their identities through creative, land or building based projects. Most importantly we create fun and focused design & participation processes which develop the sense of community and leave individuals taking part with new transferrable skills.
We are a collective of Designers, Communicators and Makers and we use co-production tools to make long-term change happen with speed and passion.
We deliver three main projects:
Community Engagement projects – often for social landlords, or local authorities
The Life of Ply – a new consumer facing ecommerce site selling replacement kitchen doors, handles and home furniture and accessories whilst offering a progression route for our learners
