The Rural Design Collective is jazzed to be working with New Artists Productions to build a WordPress site to support their inspirational youth program! Founded in 1995 by Dan and Anita Almich, New Artists Productions is “a non-profit corporation dedicated to the introduction of new young artists to the fields of the Performing Arts. The existence of this corporation is founded on the premise that there abounds considerable young talent needing an opportunity to be recognized.” Anita Almich is joining us as Project Director of this track and will be working closely with RDC mentee Jenn Covington and Ocean Fields to build a new site for this amazing group!
