Our mission at the Arts Council Oklahoma City has always been Bringing the Arts and the Community Together. We take pride in the programs designed specifically to improve the quality of life in our communities. However, we understand this mission can never be totally achieved when inequality and disparity continue to exist in any of our communities. Arts Council Oklahoma City will not tolerate racism, injustice, or oppression of any kind. We strive to provide a platform for equitable artistic expression, fully realizing we have a long road ahead of us to accomplish that goal. If we do not address the bigger questions of how and why disparities exist and if we do not address the reality of racism and its role in creating disparities, they will continue. Please join as we endeavor to change minds and mechanisms and frame the arts as a vehicle for healing, unification, and change.
