What is Creative Oklahoma?
Formed in 2006, Creative Oklahoma is a statewide non-profit organization advancing Oklahoma’s economy through creativity and innovation based initiatives in education, commerce and culture.
The mission of Creative Oklahoma is to establish Oklahoma as a world-renowned center of creativity and innovation in education, commerce and culture.
The vision is for Creative Oklahoma to recognizes, sustains, and support creative ideas, initiatives and innovations that contribute to the greater good and can be shared, adapted or adopted by Oklahoma citizens.
With strategic counsel provided by national advisor Sir Ken Robinson, Creative Oklahoma became the first non-profit organization in the U.S. with a statewide strategy to encourage and support the development of creativity and innovation in the sectors of education, commerce, and culture. Creative Oklahoma served as a catalyst for the development of the National Creativity Network and is the only North American region member of the international Districts of Creativity Network.
Creative Oklahoma encourages all individuals to nurture their creative talents and ideas to impact their home, school, work and community environments. Creativity and innovation drive solutions to our global economic and societal issues. We believe that regions intentionally developing environments that encourage and nurture creativity will be those in which our young people will want to live, all citizens will experience quality of life and will thrive economically.
