Abstract

Abstract

Wellbeing is a public health concept that is increasingly considered in government policy and decision making. Placemaking is an urban planning concept that looks at building human connections to a site. A sense of place and belonging is important to human wellbeing.

Carillons are sensory and physical focal points within a public place and can therefore have a unique role in bolstering wellbeing parameters such as connectedness, social inclusion and participation. Wellbeing indicators are increasingly incorporated by governments globally for urban planning and public health initiatives. Focussing on case studies from Australia, this paper examines how the concepts of ‘wellbeing’ and ‘placemaking’ relate to carillon and bell culture.
