Wiltshire + Dimas is a multidisciplinary consultancy and agency to the Property Industry.
Our client base includes retail and commercial property owners, property management companies and government bodies. Wiltshire + Dimas specialises in the areas of place management, placemaking, activations, cultural programming, marketing and promotion.
By employing an integrated and holistic approach to every brief, Wiltshire + Dimas has successfully implemented many high profile, innovative and world-first solutions that both respond effectively to clients’ requirements and contribute to Australia’s shifting cultural landscape.
Operating in tandem with Wiltshire + Dimas is our side project aMBUSH Gallery, a multi award-winning art gallery that not only hosts dozens of inspired non-traditional exhibitions each year, but also curates and produces Wiltshire + Dimas’ art-based activations Australia-wide.
Placemaking is the enlivening of a neutral space with a relatable and inspiring energy that unites communities and redefines the identity and purpose of that space.
Through Wiltshire + Dimas and aMBUSH Gallery, we implement a repeatedly successful approach to each client’s Placemaking requirements, ultimately delivering an integrated and fully customised solution that incorporates the twin strategies of activations and cultural programming.
Activations are projects that spur the process of Placemaking. They transform inert spaces into flourishing hubs that redefine the precincts’ identities and connect both new and existing audiences to concepts that articulate those identities.
Wiltshire + Dimas’ most notable activations to date include Vivid Sydney 2017 and Vivid Sydney at Central Park, Open Up Markets, Night Owls Kids Film Fest, Outpost Project, Project Five and Westfield re-developments nationally. Many of our creative activations are curated and presented by aMBUSH Gallery, taking advantage of our extensive network and audience reach.
Wiltshire + Dimas specialise in the development of cultural programming as content for our activations. Comprising elements including visual arts, film, theatre, music, food and creative conferences, the cultural programming of each Wiltshire + Dimas project is curated and produced so that it interacts with the specifications of the client’s brief.
Working symbiotically with a broad network of creative professionals, Wiltshire + Dimas, via aMBUSH Gallery, discerningly curates premium Australian programming tailored to the aims of our Placemaking strategies.
Committed to our integrated gamut of services, Wiltshire + Dimas offers expertise in every facet of the Placemaking process, including Marketing and Promotion.
From identity design and manufacturing to the implementation of targeted marketing and public relations campaigns, we ensure that the message of each client’s project is powerfully communicated in the most effective language, from the most appropriate platforms.
Place Management is the active and continual pursuit of improving or maintaining a specific destination for the benefit of a wide variety of end users and stakeholders, including workers, visitors, residents, shoppers, property developers and business owners.
It’s a multifaceted endeavour involving aspects such as economic development, planning, design, business management, tourism, marketing, and the social evolution of the precinct in question.
The ability to identify and overcome challenges posed by diverse environments, often with seasonal or variable needs, is also central to the role, as is the capacity to implement appropriate governance processes and measure success. An in-depth knowledge of retail, sociology, security, custodianship, and cultural programming is required, with the ultimate goal to create a thriving environment where people are drawn back time and again.
Wiltshire + Dimas have extensive experience in place management, with their appointment as precinct managers for the Australian National University’s new $260 million precinct redevelopment, Kambri, their most prominent project to date.
