Gov. Fallin declares Nov. "State of Creativity Month"

OKLAHOMA CITY - Governor Mary Fallin announced she has declared November 2011 as "State of Creativity Month" in Oklahoma.  The governor credited Creative Oklahoma for their efforts to enhance Oklahoma through events designed to showcase the state's creativity.

"Creative Oklahoma has worked tirelessly to establish Oklahoma as a world-renowned center of creativity and innovation," Fallin said. "Their efforts have contributed to the economic and cultural growth of our state. In addition to Creative Oklahoma's efforts, several events in the month of November led to my decision to make November the ‘State of Creativity Month' in hopes it will inspire our state to think of innovative solutions to our problems."

The "State of Creativity Month" will kick off with the Oklahoma Creativity Forum on Tuesday, Nov. 1, at the Embassy Suites Conference Center in Norman. The Oklahoma Creativity Forum will include a number of world-class speakers as well as the opportunity to network with state leaders in business, education and culture. Other events happening in November include Global Entrepreneurship Week and the Creativity World Forum that will be held in Hasselt, Belgium, where a delegation of 20 Oklahomans will be present.

"It is an honor to work with Governor Fallin to bring attention to Oklahoma through ‘State of Creativity Month,'" said Susan McCalmont, president of Creative Oklahoma. "Together we hope the events of November will inspire Oklahomans to imagine ideas and create ways to innovate their ideas into products and services for the marketplace."
