Pathways to involvement in ID

By Brian D. McLaren AIA, CAE posted 12-31-2017 00:00

  

In addition to attending our conferences and tours, we hope you'll join us in making Interfaith Design a learning community that's increasingly your first-stop reference for best practices in religious and spiritual architecture. This is a great way to get to know colleagues from around the country and share insights and resources in a noncompetitive environment.

Interested in volunteering?

The AIA Interfaith Design (ID) knowledge community is one of the twenty-one ways to make an impact through the AIA Knowledge Communities.
The Interfaith Design knowledge community brings together professionals interested in the design of religious facilities in a broad array of traditions, encouraging and supporting excellence in the design of worship spaces. We value an interfaith forum for the exchange of ideas relating to religion, art, and architecture. ID isn’t about one religion or another but the fostering of community and the embracing of diversity. You do not have to be religious to join.

Get involved now, as ID begins to focus on welcoming a new generation of architects to allow for collaborations and conversations with industry leaders. We are looking for a team of young professionals, 10 active volunteers, to be part of a committee who can contribute 5 hours per month to our various outreach strategies and other ID activities.

Let us know if you are interested in being part of the Interfaith Design knowledge community by filling out this short form and we'll be in touch!
