Cornerstone Conversations

Meeting paricipants

The Oklahoma Arts Council is pleased to announce Cornerstone Conversations, a series of listening sessions that will take place across the state in late 2019 and early 2020. The tour is designed to empower Oklahomans representing all communities to partner with the Oklahoma Arts Council in creating shared goals for using the arts to meet needs in communities and schools statewide. Cornerstone Conversations will be an important building block in creating the Oklahoma Arts Council 2021-2025 strategic plan.

The Oklahoma Arts Council believes that all Oklahomans should have a role in shaping new horizons for our state. Our Cornerstone Conversations tour is specifically designed as an inclusive process that will connect us with geographically and culturally diverse communities.

Conversations

Cornerstone Conversations sessions will be co-facilitated by members of each local community. Attendees can expect individual exercises and small group discussion in addition to the opportunity to provide written feedback. Each session will close with a 30-minute networking break that will include light refreshments. Seating may be limited. There is no cost to attend, however RSVPs are requested.

Through Cornerstone Conversations, our staff will be able to listen, learn, and dream together with Oklahomans representing all communities for what is possible for our state through the arts. Reserve your seat for one of the scheduled sessions, or look for more tour stops to be announced soon in a community near you.
