This two-day course is presented by Design Corps, the SEED Network, and the New Orleans AIA. Participants will learn skills and methods to effectively engage in community-based design through professional fee-based projects. The Public Interest Design Institute curriculum is structured around the Social Economic Environmental Design (SEED) process and metric, which provides a guide for practice, documentation, and showcasing of public interest design projects.

Successful participants will earn 13 AIA/ASLA/USGBC HSW CEUs/PDHs and certification as a SEED Professional. Professionals preparing for licensure will earn 13 AXP Hours.

We are a proud partner for this event as we believe this topic is aligned with our goal to convene the public around architecture and design, and it's impact on our community.
