The Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa Hardesty Arts Center, known as AHHA, opened in December 2012 and is the home of the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa in the heart of the Brady Arts District. Offering exhibition space, classrooms, a family studio, woodshop, darkroom, rooftop artist studios and event space, creativity is truly at the core of the building.
The Council was established in 1961 by community leaders as a non-profit, educational organization. It is an umbrella organization for 58 constituent groups with an aim of coordinating and promoting arts and culture throughout Tulsa. The Council continues to provide incubation services for emerging arts and culture-based groups and has a proud reputation of nurturing programs that become successful independent entities.
