Creative Exchange in Quartz, DIY Network

Over the summer, PKPR has placed stories in outlets from Quartz to DIY Network to Food Republic on how Creative Exchange is helping communities nationwide replicate Community Supported Art programs.  The program is modeled after Community Supported Agriculture, but instead of buying a share to receive produce from a local farm, shareholders receive boxes of original art made by local artists.

With the nation gearing up for the 2016 elections, the Knight News Challenge on Elections in Austin last week awarded $3.2 million to a range of innovative projects that increase voter participation and better inform voters at both the national and local levels.

- The Guardian profiled a program that will recruit barbers in predominantly African-American communities to disseminate nonpartisan voting information and resources

- The Dailly Dot did a fantastic, in depth piece looking at a project that will expose “dark money” in campaign financing

- National Journal explored an AP project to create a more accurate alternative to exit polling
