Adaptation of Social Attributes of Place in Creative Placemaking towards Social Sustainability
Creative placemaking emerges as an evolving field of practice that leverages the power of arts, culture, and creativity to serve the community’s interests. Scholars have conveyed the values and benefits of creative placemaking in dealing with social issues and formulating agenda for urban transformation. An extensive review of the literature was conducted to understand the significance of social attributes of place in supporting creative placemaking strategies. A systematic search process yielded 14 articles from 121 documents that have been analyzed systematically. The review found that the social attributes of place generate social opportunities and community-led creative placemaking as catalysts for sustainable urban regeneration.
