Most of the Placemaking Projects so far have been undertaken in Senegal, West Africa. This was the homebase of Studio Placemakers from 2013 - 2017. End 2017 we moved from Senegal back to the Netherlands. While continuing projects in Senegal from a distance with local and international partners, Studio Placemakers takes on and initiates placemaking projects in the Netherlands. Or projects directly linked to placemaking.
