The deadline for submitting a proposal is Tuesday March 5, 2013 at 5:00 pm

The Citizens' Institute on Rural Design is a National Endowment for the Arts
leadership initiative in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture
and Project for Public Spaces, Inc., along with the Orton Family Foundation
and the CommunityMatters® Partnership.

 

CIRD (formerly known as "Your Town") works to help rural communities with
populations of 50,000 or fewer enhance their quality of life and economic
vitality through facilitated design workshops. The program brings together
local leaders, non-profits, and community organizations with a team of
specialists in design, planning, and creative placemaking to address
challenges like strengthening economies, enhancing rural character,
leveraging cultural assets, and designing efficient housing and
transportation systems.

 

The workshops will be augmented with conference calls and webinar
presentations led by experts who will cover topics related to rural design.
The calls will also be open to the general public through CommunityMatters.
