The Sprawl is Calgary pop-up journalism. We launched in September 2017 to cover our city’s municipal election. It began as a zany experiment, a creative way to keep local journalism alive in tough times. And hey, it worked! A swell of community support has turned our tiny shop into a going concern. We’re 100% crowdfunded via Patreon. The Sprawl is designed to be set up and taken down and set up again to cover specific things. The pop-up nature of the venture — and your support — makes it doable.
