Small cities with big dreams: creative placemaking and branding strategies

Small cities with big dreams: creative placemaking and branding strategies

Richards, Greg, author; Duif, Lian, author

How can small cities make an impact in a globalising world dominated by 'world cities' and urban development strategies aimed at increasing agglomeration? This book addresses the challenges of smaller cities trying to put themselves on the map, attract resources and initiate development. Placemaking has become an important tool for driving urban development that is sensitive to the needs of communities. This volume examines the development of creative placemaking practices that can help to link small cities to external networks, stimulate collaboration and help them make the most of the opportunities presented by the knowledge economy
