Chris Barr

"Knight Media Innovation + Art/Design Nerd"

Hi, I'm Chris. I work with the Journalism & Media Innovation team at Knight Foundation to help bring amazing projects to life. Currently, I manage the Prototype Fund, a funding initiative that supports the creation of proof-of-concept prototypes of early-stage media ideas.

I have a background in design, art and media. Prior to joining the team at Knight, I was a design profesor at West Virginia University. I make art that is sometimes shown in galleries and museums.

I can help you with any of your News Challenge questions, email me at or tweet @heychrisbarr.

Tiny Space Reuse (Parklets)

Thinking small. The parklet movement teaches us that improving even small things, can make a big impact on the quality of a neighborhood. Can we think the same way about data, information and services?
