Mr. Kyle Kutuchief

Program Director, Akron, Knight Foundation

The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation invests in journalism, the arts and the success of cities where its founders once published newspapers. To help move Akron towards stabilization and growth, Knight invests in public life and the public realm to attract and engage residents, with a focus on downtown and surrounding neighborhoods. Akron is also part of Reimagining the Civic Commons, a Knight-supported national initiative that seeks to counteract economic and social fragmentation by revitalizing and connecting public spaces.
