About ShopTalk

We want to give everyone a chance to participate and be involved in our club. This is why this year we are starting a series of informal public discussions on all things creative. The idea is to gather at coffee houses and campuses in our area and create more opportunities for everyone to join in the conversation on whatever topic we choose for each session.  The more we share ideas with each other, the higher the chances for making “something big” happen in our community.

We don’t want to make you wait a whole month to see your peers and get inspired by our awesome guest speakers. Why not get together more often, more casually and really dig deeper into the issues that affect us and our industry, the ideas we dream about or the projects we want to realize? … Everything from business issues to new production techniques, to defining the “Tulsa brand” is on the table for discussion topics. We want to create as many ShopTalk groups as possible and cater to their specific interests by paring up each group (and venue) with the more “experienced” members of our club that will serve as moderators for each discussion. We are currently coordinating wth our various College reps and local design/advertising/creative sutdios in order to determine when and where we will hold the first ShopTalk.
