2023 Space2Place Applications Open January 19th – Big Sky Economic Development
December 15, 2022 /
A space is a void. Nothing happens there. We pass it by without much thought. A place is a destination. We want to go there. We want to be there. Placemaking is about transforming ugly and underutilized spaces in our communities into vibrant, attractive, inviting, and memorable places.
Space2Place is a creative placemaking micro-grant competition open to residents of Yellowstone County. Big Sky Economic Development introduced this program in 2018 to promote smaller, incremental improvements to make the public spaces of our communities more beautiful, more engaging, more interesting, and more enjoyable.
Placemaking is the practice of creating or enhancing a community’s assets to improve its overall attractiveness and livability. The four fundamental elements of placemaking are:
- Access & Linkages – Easy to get to
- Comfort & Image – Easy to be there
- Uses & Activities – Fun to be there
- Sociability – Easy to interact
