Entro is excited to be supporting a much needed research study that compares the return on investment of placemaking in our communities. Led by Ryerson University’s Louis-Etienne Dubour, Creative Industries professor at the School of Creative Studies, the study brings together perspectives from leading arts, culture and design institutions, including The Daniels Corporation, Lemay, MASSIVart, and Entro.
This research will compare the impact of placemaking in a series of virtual reality environments designed by Ryerson students and curated by the project’s industry partners. Resulting metrics will inform our assessment and communication of the economic, social, and aesthetic value of placemaking in the planning of projects. Find out more about this research here.
