AMS’s Michele Walter presented a plan to a diverse group of stakeholders in Ardmore, Oklahoma, to breathe life into the city’s arts and cultural offerings.
AMS was originally hired to assist in developing a plan that would create a roadmap in identifying and prioritizing investment and programming in Ardmore’s key existing cultural facilities, including the historic Tivoli Theatre, Heritage Hall, Depot Park, and the Goddard Center. As AMS worked with Ardmore Main Street Authority, Ardmore Tourism Authority, Ardmore Chamber of Commerce, the City of Ardmore, and arts and business leaders, it became evident that the community was longing for expanded arts and culture programming.
AMS suggested growing the city’s sector through a series of incremental steps in a generative process to strengthen the city’s unique cultural assets and catalyzing creative growth reflective of a population that is uniquely Ardmore.
