Connected devices and toys like the Amazon Echo and Hello Barbie are on track to be this season’s hottest gifts. But how can shoppers make sure they’re buying gadgets that aren’t going to spy on their kids or get their friends hacked?

Tenement Museum shapes immigration debate

By Patrick Kowalczyk

Dec. 22, 2017

With immigration dominating the national debate, PKPR worked with The Tenement Museum to develop a thought leadership strategy positioning the museum as a voice providing historical context on immigration. Over the past four months, we have placed two op-eds by the museum’s President Kevin Jennings in The Hill (Trump must not break America’s tradition of immigration and Thank Immigrants for your “American” Christmas) and one in Newsweek (A War on Christmas? What Christmas Are You Talking About?)  The museum’s Vice President of Marketing and Communications, David Eng, also wrote a powerful first-person essay for Vice News (I Forgot I Was A Refugee).

Using art for urban planning

By Patrick Kowalczyk

Dec. 22, 2017


Cities looking to engage the public in urban planning are ditching traditional town meetings in favor of eye-catching, artist-designed tools like a mobile sign shop, a really big table, transportable photo studio with built-in darkrooms, and a pop-up ping pong table.

It’s all part of Ready/Go, an online marketplace created by Springboard for the Arts where local governments, organizations and community groups can hire artists who have created whimsical art installations designed to engage people in conversations and interaction. 

PKPR secured coverage for the innovative program in a range of outlets including Governing Magazine, CityLab, and PSFK
