Call for Contributions to the “Greatest Hits” Issue of the CIRD Newsletter this December

Dear CIRD alumnae,

As Project for Public Spaces closes out our tenure as Cooperators for the Citizen’s Institute on Rural Design™ program, we plan to put out a “best of” “greatest hits” issue of the CIRD newsletter this December.

We’d love to include your workshop in that piece. Following the link and using the following form, we ask you send us a brief description of your proudest moments, most surprising outcomes, ingenious implementation and funding strategies, successes (fundraising, partnership building and however else you choose to describe success), and other meaningful outcomes, impacts, and improvements in your community that you believe were a direct (if not sole) result of your CIRD workshop.

Please include photos with your submission and submit the form by December 1st, 2018. Even if we have written a blog about your project or workshop, we’d love to add more updated information about your achievements.

We think it will make for a great read, be a great synopsis of the 19 workshops that were produced under PPS’ guidance and stewardship, and inspire  the next generation of CIRD workshop hosts, communities, and Resource Team Members.

Help us celebrate the talent, wisdom, creativity, genius, dynamism, and fearlessness of your communities and highlight the importance of technical support and guidance that programs like CIRD provide to small towns and rural communities across America!  

Here is a link to the survey.

Thank you in advance for contributing to our glorious send off of the CIRD program.

All the best,

Cynthia M. Nikitin

Director, Citizens' Institute on Rural Design
