Other Programs and Outreach

As the designated arts organization for Salt Lake City, the Salt Lake City Arts Council provides access to arts opportunities in diverse disciplines, price points, locations, and depth of experience in order to promote public participation. In addition to providing accessible programming opportunities, the Arts Council creates connections between the arts and the public, cultivates future artists and arts organizations, and gives voice to community arts needs. Various opportunities to present programming or partner with other organizations arise throughout the year. Some of these opportunities may become ongoing offerings while others may be one-time events.



In 2018, the Salt Lake City Arts Council hired Union Creative Agency to conduct a Gap Analysis and Needs Assessment study for the Arts Council. The study included reviewing and compiling information for City master plans, studies and raw data sets to identify gaps in programs, resources, and other assets.

Several goals resulting from the study included the following:

Conduct a strategic planning process (to be completed June 2020)

Continue to assess and establish clarity in the current organizational model of the Salt Lake City Arts Council

Conduct continued Stakeholder Engagement

Work with Salt Lake City departments and planning teams to ensure they recognize the value of the Salt Lake City Arts Council as a potential partner in the developments and areas covered by the assessed Master Plans
