SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Arts & Museums is pleased to announce OnStage in Utah funding is now open and accepting applications. The application deadline is June 24, 2016.
OnStage in Utah funding enables presenting organizations to bring an in-state or out-of-state performing artist to their community. The performing artist must do both a public performance and a community engagement activity. This funding opportunity allows presenters to engage with various performing artists. Applicants may request $200-$2,000 with funding covering 50% of the performing artist’s fee.
“We are grateful for the OnStage in Utah program and the financial assistance it provides to not-for-profits like the Heber Valley Western Music & Cowboy Poetry Gathering,” Rachel Kahler from Wasatch Western Heritage, Inc. said. “The program allows our committee to bring in top talent to the schools and the feedback from teachers, administrators, and parents has been overwhelmingly positive.”
