A New Name, a New Brand, and a New Vision for AHHA Tulsa

Aired on Wednesday, April 4th.

The Arts and Humanities Council of Tulsa will now be known as AHHA Tulsa. As per the AHHA website: "The organization's Board of Directors voted recently to change the name to something modern that encompasses the organization's mission to cultivate creativity in Tulsa, while also honoring its decades-long history. AHHA will continue to provide its long-standing arts infusion programs such as Artists in the Schools and Any Given Child-Tulsa, and [the organization is also] unveiling a new model of engaging people at its downtown Hardesty Arts Center, now officially deemed AHHA." We learn more about all of the above from our two guests on StudioTulsa today: Holly Becker is the Executive Director of AHHA Tulsa, and Dr. Amber R. Litwack is the organization's Director of Education, Public Engagement, and National Partnerships.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
