Crews

Think committees, but way more passionate and action-oriented. Crews are our way of organizing and executing initiatives in a wide variety of areas. The projects carried out by Crews are meant to strengthen the sense of place in Durant and make our city better for all living and visiting here.

Anyone interested in getting involved in Imagine Durant is welcome to join a crew that speaks to your passions, talents, or budding interests.

If you see a crew you'd like to check out, you can email Imagine Durant directly to learn more about what the Crew is working on or check out our Imagine Durant calendar for details about crew-specific meeting locations and times.
