Instructions for using the How-To Guides:
Begin by completing the Community Assessment. The assessment allows you to evaluate your community to find its strengths and help narrow down the best project for your community. For example, if you complete the assessment and learn that an important war battle happened, perhaps you could plan a festival that celebrates the history and memorializes the soldiers that fought in the battle.
After you have determined your community's strengths, you can move on to one of the how-to guides which include: marketing, branding & signage, public art, festivals & events, and forming a local action committee. In some instances you might want to use more than one guide.
