The Rural-Urban Exchange began in Kentucky in 2014, founded in partnership with Art of the Rural and Appalshop. The Kentucky Rural-Urban Exchange (KY RUX)’s external website provides blog-style updates and announcements about the program, including highlights from weekend-long Community Intensives, alumni gatherings, multimedia projects, and more. You can also learn more about the individuals making up the 55-member KY RUX cohort, in addition to the current KY RUX Steering Committee members.

You can also sign up for the KY RUX newsletter through this external site to stay in-the-know about the next cohort application process and deadlines.
