We are proud to announce the return of our Culture Connect Conference for its second year!

Hosted by the Utah Cultural Alliance, in partnership with the Utah Division of Arts & Museums, the single-day conference will be held on Monday, May 15 at 8 AM MT. Attendees can expect a wide variety of offerings including a keynote speaker, relevant breakout sessions and panel discussions, a live broadcast of UCA's Culture Bytes podcast, and awards honoring remarkable individuals in the cultural industry.

Each session will be tailored to improving your business skills and expertise in the cultural industry. We aim to create an environment in which your creativity and knowledge will blossom so that you can continue in your goal of educating and transforming lives.

This will also be an opportunity for you to expand your network and forge new connections that can bolster your creative and administrative work.

We heard you last year, and we’ve added multiple networking opportunities throughout the conference at your request. Our members come from the worlds of arts, entertainment, humanities, museums, STEAM, film, design, and more. There is so much we can share with each other, and we’re excited to create a space to do it!

Most importantly, we will have fun! With this many creatives in one room, you know that we won’t be able to stop ourselves from making things interesting.

We look forward to seeing you on May 15th!
