Picture Adelaide 2040
Picture Adelaide 2040 is a crowd sourcing project that asks the people of Adelaide to share their experiences of Adelaide City and surrounds. The Adelaide City Council wants to know why the city is a great place to work, shop, study, visit, play and live. Over the span of 30 days, Picture Adelaide aims to collect at least 1,000 experiences from the people of Adelaide, all of which will go together to help shape the 2040 Adelaide city plan.
This site has found much of it’s workings through the public’s increasing familiarity with crowd sourcing projects. It has a very strong commitment to a simple and logical submission process. The dynamic of sites like this rely on the quality of the contributions, and reading the submissions the Adelaide landscape in the future will be one rich community.
This project aligns nicely with the new consciousness of place making. With other projects like Place Leaders and stereopublic we are steadily becoming involved in projects of this ilk.
