The Mayors’ Institute on City Design (MICD) is a leadership initiative of the National
Endowment for the Arts in partnership with the United States Conference of Mayors.
Since 1986, the Mayors’ Institute has helped transform communities through design
by preparing mayors to be the chief urban designers of their cities.
MICD achieves its mission by organizing technical assistance workshops where
mayors engage leading design and development experts to find solutions to the most
critical planning and design challenges facing their cities. Sessions are organized
around case study projects. Each mayor presents a project from his or her city and
receives feedback from other mayors and design professionals.
Mayor Lumumba was one of eight mayors selected to attend the 71st National
Session of the Mayors’ Institute in November 2018. Jennifer Hughes from the
National Endowment for the Arts is visiting from Washington, D.C. to have an open
conversation about his experience.
