Supporting the arts is a uniting issue among politicians across party lines on all levels of government, but inspiring real advocacy once the election season ends remains a tricky endeavor for the state’s creative community. The Oklahoma Artist Network will be bringing together civic leaders, politicians, and members of the arts industry to discuss how to further develop advocacy on the city and state level.

Whether commissioning public art using local talent or linking up artists with private industry, advocacy is a crucial way to bolster the creative industry and strengthen the state’s quality of life. The panel discussion will focus on ways to encourage collaboration and dialogue among artists and public officials.

The panel will include State Representative Kay Floyd, State Senator David Holt, director for Oklahomans for the Arts Jennifer James, Jill Simpson of the Oklahoma Film & Music Office, Robbie Kienzle, Liaison OKC Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs and will be moderated by Charles Martin of Literati Press. It will be followed by a meet and greet session at the museum where artists and civic leaders can further discuss how to work together to strengthen the community.

The Oklahoma Artist Network facilitates creative growth through inter-disciplinary communication and collaboration. OAN hosts quarterly events focusing on various aspects of the state’s rich artistic culture in an effort to highlight ways to bolster the state’s creative industry. OAN also maintains an online forum where artists can connect to one another as well as find opportunities to develop their careers.
