Kentucky Rural Urban Exchange Coming to Covington!
This weekend the Kentucky Rural Urban Exchange, or the KYRUX, will be coming to Covington for one of their weekend-long community intensive weekends.
The Kentucky Rural-Urban Exchange program is known for helping rural and urban Kentuckians discover their common identity, history and culture. Over the two-year commitment, RUX brings leaders in the arts, agriculture, community development, health, and business together over six weeks. During these Community Intensives, we change the context of professional collaboration to help members deepen bonds, inspire stronger accountability, and create the conditions for innovation.
Now in its fifth year, this partnership between Art of the Rural and Appalshop has earned national acclaim in the Atlantic, the Wall Street Journal, US News and World Report, and national conferences such as Grantmakers in the Arts and the Community Development Society. The Kentucky Rural-Urban Exchange (RUX) has served more than 200 Kentuckians from 42 counties since 2014, and will have been hosted in every region of the state by the end of 2018.
