THE OKLAHOMA CREATIVE COMMUNITIES PROJECT IS ON!

Communities throughout Oklahoma may now apply for the Oklahoma Creative Communities Project, a new initiative of Creative Oklahoma.  The project will foster, encourage and highlight the creativity of communities who solve local issues with new ideas and innovation which advance their local economy and life quality.  Communities may be a municipality, Native American nation, or designated districts within Oklahoma’s two metropolitan cities.

We are seeking Oklahoma’s most creative communities that can be recognized for their success and can serve as models for others,” said Creative Oklahoma Chairman, Roger Webb.  “It’s a unique project from others around the country, in that, we are looking for community initiatives that tap into the creative and innovative talent of residents to develop new solutions, foster a cross-sector inter-disciplinary network of engaged citizens, and nurture the development of creative school, workplace and civic environments where new ideas are encouraged,” he said.

Communities who are selected for the new ‘creative community’ designation will receive asset mapping of community strengths and centers of excellence; partnership with design thinking experts; access to Creative Oklahoma’s cSchool faculty, a teaching cadre of Oklahoma-based academicians and practitioners in creativity and innovation; special high school youth leadership development focus and connections for their education and business community with innovation trainers, leaders and mentors.

Submission criteria includes current creative events or strategies already in place in the community, commitment to a 2017 Creativity event to celebrate and showcase the Oklahoma Creative Communities project and evidence of interest and intent to fully participate in the process, and strength and diversity of leadership representing all community diversity sectors.

APPLY NOW at stateofcreativity.com/occ until February 1, 2016 at 6 p.m. The official announcement of the selected communities is March 1, 2016.
