Tracy Mikich co-founder of Boojum&Snark, says,

“Just the Place is really a celebration of Sandown, the community, creative practitioners, supporters and participants who have helped to conjure unique cultural content that weaves threads of Sandown into the present.”

Placemaking is a way to unlock a sense of pride, passion and wonder in your place. It relies on making authentic connections that strengthen peoples relationship to their place. For Boojum&Snark, placemaking also involves bringing activities, projects, experiences to Sandown that arouse curiosity and inspire interest and love for the town.

This exploration involves delving into the hidden past or shining a light on everyday beauty. Supported by the Arts Council and working with creative practitioners and the community we have, over three years, discovered new perspectives and stories that together fuse to form a collective narrative that boosts confidence and broadens awareness.

Whether it’s stimulating discussions about abandoned hotels or marvelling at the natural beauty of the Bay area, it’s Sandown that is at the heart of all these projects.
