Open Spaces Sacred Places: The Healing Power of Nature

National Awards Initiative for Integrated Design and Research
The TKF Foundation announces the Open Spaces Sacred Places (OSSP) National Awards Program.   Awards will fund development of significant new sacred public green spaces in urban settings that demonstrate a combination of high quality design-build and rigorous research about user impacts.
The total remaining funding pool is $4 million.
Funding will be provided to cross-disciplinary teams that are able to 1) conceptualize, plan, design and implement an open and sacred green space, 2) conduct associated research study(ies), and 3) communicate scientific findings.  TKF seeks to identify projects replicable in their intent.  Projects should also be generalizable in the challenges they address to serve as potential archetypes for urban areas across the U.S.
For  guidelines, please see the Request for Proposal.
