Begin with Uncertainty

A creative venture might not always be all rainbows and unicorns. In our placemaking venture, besides striving to increase the liveliness of spaces by fostering community participation, what gave us the most pain is managing the unexpected, just like everyone else who's just starting out. While we understand the power and beauty of constrains in inspiring innovation, we couldn't help but hope for continuous clarity in every step that we take. How do we unlock the true value of innovation in the midst of uncertainty?

What People will learn :
What is Placemaking?
How to manage the unexpected?
How do we face constrains in our creative venture?
