Switchyard is a national festival of art and intellect featuring 40 keynote speakers and local and national performance artists – based in the heart of Downtown Tulsa.
Switchyard will invite people to cross the tracks that once divided this city to explore our complicated histories, seek new points of connection and activate the transformative power of art. In this inaugural year, we’ll focus on attempts to ban, censor or suppress challenging ideas—new and old. This will mean digging into the past, imagining alternative identities and dreaming of rich new futures.
