New York-based nonprofit organization Project for Public Spaces announced this week that Chattanooga will host the 3rd International Placemaking Week conference on October 1–4, 2019.

Co-hosted this year with The Innovation District of Chattanooga, organizers say this landmark placemaking event will bring together over 400 public space advocates and practitioners from across the globe.

It will be co-hosted by the New York-based Project for Public Spaces and the Innovation District of Chattanooga.

Organizers say Placemaking Week will capitalize on Chattanooga’s unique history, expertise, and physical geography to explore the intersection of public space and pressing issues like social equity, economic development, and community engagement. Organized in partnership with the Innovation District of Chattanooga, the event will take place throughout the downtown area, but it will also include workshops, public space interventions, and tours in outlying neighborhoods and towns throughout the region.
