For the past 10 years our work has been, and will continue to be, about supporting local artists and building an Omaha where they can thrive. As we look toward the next 10 years, the name Omaha Creative Institute no longer supports or reflects our values, current work, or strategic goals.Did you know we were supposed to be an arts business program within Bellevue University? That didn't happen, obviously, but the name stuck.Since 2008 we have transformed and adapted to the needs of the artist community, beginning with Come Create It workshops, adding Artist INC in 2014, CSArt in 2016, and an Artist Grants program in 2018. We will continue to adapt and change to whatever the artist community needs us to be.
Amplify means to magnify, intensify, increase, boost.
That's exactly what we want to do. We want to take the amazing talent and energy that exists in Greater Omaha and help it grow bigger, stronger, and reach farther. Becoming Amplify Arts enables us to live that mission fully. Let's get to work!Andy, Caitlin, Peter, & The Amplify Arts Board of Directors
