Capacity Building Calls

CIRD supports host communities before and after their workshops via informational conference calls and webinars that cover critical topics in community engagement, rural design, partnership development, and workshop planning.

Application Assistance

CIRD will offer two pre-application assistance calls to help prepare you to submit a competitive proposal for the 2014 CIRD Award. 

April 2nd: On April 2, we hosted a Program Information Webinar. CIRD staff from the National Endowment for the Arts and Project for Public Spaces provided an overview of the program and answered questions related to the recently released RFP. With over 100 people on the call, we are very excited to see the enormous interest in the 2014 – 2015 Rural Workshop Program. A recording of the webinar is available here.

April 24th: During the second call, CIRD staff will be available to answer questions and clarify anything related to the Request for Proposals and application process. CIRD will be accepting questions prior to the call to ensure that we get to as many inquiries as possible. 

Both calls will begin at 3:00 pm EDT and last approximately one hour. Participation in each call is free but registration is required.
