To foster the arts in all forms to create an AWARE, EMPOWERED, and CONNECTED community
The UAA provides unique services and programs that benefit the communities we serve by providing the infrastructure that enables people to pursue their creative dreams and experience art in their community. We operate four venues and provide many crucial programs and services for artists, as well as unmatched opportunities for the public to experience arts & culture through our events and community programs.
Our programming and facilities are extensive but focused, directed at creating a space for artists of all backgrounds and all forms. We provide unique venues, events, and programs that are vital to the cultural health of the communities we serve. Through facilities, festivals, and our other unique programming, we support over 2,000 artists in multiple disciplines and serve over 200,000 people in Utah each year. Ultimately, our goal is to benefit our community by providing the infrastructure that enables people from all walks of life, especially those who lack financial resources, to pursue their creative dreams and experience art in their community.
The simplest way to break down what the Utah Arts Alliance is and does is to think of it in these three categories: (1) Cultural Facilities & Venues that are run by the UAA, (2) Art Festivals & Events that are produced by the UAA, (3) Programs and Media that are created and administered by the UAA.
Cultural Facilities & Venues
UAA provides these spaces at affordable prices as well as for free in our sponsored partnerships.
