Omaha Creative Institute provides artists with the training and opportunities they need to build an economically sustainable career in the arts. We do this by providing professional development, offering grants to artists, and connecting artists and patrons.

OCI uses its platform to elevate and advocate for local artists and cultural producers. We are a service delivery organization, supporting the needs of local artists of all disciplines (music, written/spoken word, theatre, dance, visual art, etc.) and work to ensure that the Omaha Metro becomes a place where they are able to live and work sustainably.
