Place Activation

We’re painting a new picture of Maitland. The canvas will be the streets, laneways, parks and gateways that lead to the city. Place activation creates a sense of place, encourages social connections, improves safety and brings life to the streets. It will be expressed in diverse ways through art, food, play, performance and renewal activities.

Place activation projects bring energy to the streets, create new community connections and build the story of a place.

Initiatives will be guided by the Maitland Place Activation Strategy.
