Office Partnership Grants

The mission of the Utah Division of Arts & Museums is to connect people and communities of Utah through arts and museums. By creating strategic partnerships with Utah-based nonprofit organizations that have complementary missions and resources, Utah Arts & Museums can more efficiently and effectively provide services for Utah art and museum organizations. The purpose of Office Partnership Grants is to leverage funding to provide training, networking, centralized marketing, professional development, technical assistance, model programs, or unique educational resources.

Because these are partnership grants, the grant application must be crafted with a Utah Division of Arts & Museums staff member and must contain mutually agreed upon goals and measurements. If you have questions about the Office Partnership Grant, you may contact the Utah Arts & Museums Grants Manager at 801-236-7550. Follow the links, below, to access the guidelines, the budget form, and the online grant application.

OnStage in Utah

OnStage in Utah recognizes the important role presenters play in linking performing artists with Utah audiences. Funding is available to Utah Presenters to support a public performance as well as a separate community engagement activity of an in-state or out-of-state performing artist. OnStage in Utah funding is available in the amount of up to $2,000 or 50% of the artistic fees, whichever is less.

Individual Artists

At this time, we do not offer grants for individual artists. Performing Artists can apply for assistance to attend professional conferences. Writers can submit manuscripts to the Original Writing Competition. The Statewide Annual Competition and Visual Arts Fellowship are opportunities for individual artists. Folk Arts grants to individual folk artists will be available in the fall of 2015.
