Your Place Curriculum is a collaborative project developed by PLACED and Our Place. It is generously funded by the Ove Arup Foundation

PLACED is a progressive and independent team empowering people’s voices through built environment education and engagement to make better places together. We engage people in design, planning and development. We do this through inclusive consultation, engagement and education. Our tailor-made programmes connect communities, decision makers, schools and businesses across the Northwest.

We are a social enterprise and our values are at the heart of all we do. We advocate for genuine involvement of communities and stakeholders, helping to ensure those who do not traditionally have a voice can participate on an equal platform.

Our work is creative, inclusive and inspiring, whilst providing tangible, meaningful results. Our work is possible due to the support of over 150 volunteer Ambassadors – student and industry professionals – who are passionate about quality design in the built environment. We have significant experience in delivering education programmes that place the built environment at the core. Our work includes delivering creative workshops in schools, colleges and universities and holiday programmes. Since 2012, we have worked with thousands of young people.

It is our belief that we are all experts in the design of the places and spaces we live, work and spend time in. We believe that we can only make better places together.

Our Place

Our Place is an inclusive cultural education and engagement practice based in Bristol. They inspire and engage communities, children, young people and schools in placemaking, sustainability, local heritage, STEM and creativity, through co-designed participatory projects.

Our Place is led by Amy Harrison, a qualified teacher with over 15 years’ experience of placed-based engagement, community enabling and charity sector leadership in diverse inner city neighbourhoods.

Our Place believes that everyone should be empowered to shape the places in which they live, work and play and to have agency in decision-making which impacts their lives.
