Arts in Communities

One of the Oklahoma Arts Council's primary goals is to make the arts accessible to all Oklahomans. To accomplish this we offer assistance to organizations throughout the state that provide arts programs for their communities.


As a public agency our staff is available at no charge to consult with individuals and organizations interested in developing, expanding, or strengthening their community arts programs.

For assistance please contact us at (405) 521-2931 or
