Creative Exchange is the national program of Springboard for the Arts, and receives key funding from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, The Kresge Foundation and the Surdna Foundation. Additional support and content partnerships come from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation, and the Aspen Institute Arts Program.
