About Us

Cultural Programs is a Division within the OCCC Office of Community Development which aims to enrich the lives of students, staff, and the south Oklahoma City community at large by fostering a thriving arts environment.

Because art has both instrumental and intrinsic benefits for individuals and society at-large, the College believes that people, notwithstanding their station in life, should have the opportunity to actively engage in the arts both as participants and patrons. To this end, OCCC's Cultural Programs provide affordable or no-cost performing and visual arts experiences, as well as community arts outreach and education activities. Principal among these are:

In addition, the Office of Cultural Programs oversees use and rentals OCCC's Bruce Owen Theater.
