The grants managers from the Utah Division of Arts & Museums and Utah Humanities Are headed back on the road to offer a few more workshops in four different counties. The workshops are free, but the registration is limited, and the workshop may fill up.

Workshops & Seminars
Workshops and seminars are developed to address the varied needs of Utah’s artists, writers, museums and professional organizations.
Mountain West Arts Conference
The Mountain West Arts Conference is designed to help individuals and organizations in the arts community access essential resources and create community connections throughout Utah and the Mountain West. It is also part of a long-term effort to sustain the creative industry by providing opportunities, education, tools, information and resources that serve all contributors to the arts.
Change Leader Program
The Change Leader Program is a professional development course and an active network of course graduates. The program has four main components: the Change Leader Institute, Certification Projects, Conferences, and Leadership Circles/Special Initiatives. Participants attend a three-day Change Leader Institute that lays the basics for assessing needs and opportunities in their environments, teaches the communication skills to shape and obtain commitment, and outlines the facilitation skills that transition groups and implement change. Following the Institute, Change Leaders practice these skills by completing a certification project. These certified Change Leaders form a statewide network of cultural and community leaders that share a common language, mentor each other, and convene through leadership circles and conferences.
The 2008 State Legislature enacted a bill that requires the Utah Arts & Museums to establish a program creating a Certified Utah Museum designation. Museums must be certified to be eligible for grants. For those museums that register with the Commerce Department for soliciting funds, the Certified Utah Museum designation reduces the annual registration fee from $100 to $65.
The museum performance goals program encourages museums to become more professional through a self-study that covers eight vital museum programs: purpose and stucture, staff, finance, facilities, collections and conservation, exhibitions, education and public relations.
We provide funding to artists, nonprofit organizations, museums and schools through grants and competitions.
