Your membership in UCA funds our ability to:

  1. advocate on behalf of arts and culture organizations to Utah’s elected and government officials and keep members apprised of public policy that affects the community
  2. raise awareness of the impact of the cultural sector through marketing tools such as our Cultural Asset Map and by continually measuring, collecting, and disseminating economic data
  3. provide accessible professional development programs to boost skills among cultural organization workers and nurture collaboration with other cultural organizations, as well as government, business, and individuals. 

Our membership-driven organization is comprised of more than 300 organizational and individual members representing some 80,000 cultural administrators and artists. Member organizations include for-profit cultural businesses (galleries, graphic design firms, interior designers, film makers, architectural firms, photography studios, as well as individual artists and scholars) and nonprofits such as museums (arts, history, science, botanical gardens, and zoos), universities, archives, libraries, artists, patrons, as well as arts, folk arts, cultural, humanities, science, education, preservation, history, and heritage organizations. Additionally, businesses, corporations, and foundations belong to UCA to support the continuing viability and visibility of Utah’s cultural community.

We offer a limited amount of scholarships to organizations or individuals who would like to participate in Utah Cultural Alliance but cannot afford the membership fee. Click here to apply.
