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: 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, and to conduct continued Stakeholder Engagement.
