At Creative Oklahoma and the Creativity World Forum, we believe conversations can be change agents. It is our vision to create a salon where rich conversations and connections can happen.

The salon aims to extend our forum experience, deepen our insight into creativity and strengthen our resolve to be purveyors of creativity and ideas that matter. The space we envision is open, experimental and emerging. We like to think of our Creativity Salon as an incubator for truly original perspectives on the most dynamic ideas topics that shape creativity.


Let’s cultivate a space for conversations that provoke us deeper into internal spaces and wider into broadened perspectives. This is not a platform-building, ego-fueling venue, but a space for conversation and connection. Share your ideas and insights. Learn how the Forum influenced others. Connect to discover collaborative opportunities. Tell us how the day inspired you.

Being a creative is an organic business. This will be an open conversation, do come prepared to listen, share, influence, and learn. We look forward to hearing what you have to say. We’d love it if you’d join us for this lively Creativity Salon and after party. You’ll be glad that you stayed.
