Cultural Non-profit Resources


Culture is Vital

We are all standing witness to a history that will be told for generations. Such a time calls for introspective creativity and resilience that's common to the arts and humanities. No one will be exempt from the impacts of COVID-19. While we recognize that attention must be paid first and foremost on the life-saving work happening at this moment in time, including social distancing and increased testing, we know research demonstrates how the arts and humanities positively impacts our immediate and critical needs such as health, economic development, public well-being, community cohesion, and more. The work of the cultural sector is vital, now and in a time of recovery.

This page will serve to provide resources to our state’s cultural organizations and will be updated frequently. We also encourage our cultural non-profit community to review the economic relief opportunities - including federal, state, and local resources - on the Business Resources page coronavirus.utah.gov/business.

As in other industries, public health restrictions have caused organizations in the cultural sector to alter their existing practices. Without theaters, museums, libraries, and other cultural facilities, our local organizations are creating innovative solutions to continue to engage with the community.

A comprehensive list of Utah-based virtual classes, performances, readings, films, concerts, virtual field trips, and other cultural offerings can be found on the Now Playing Utah website.

Economic Impact on the Cultural Sector

We recognize that the current public health crisis facing our country will cause significant impact to the cultural sector. Many organizations and entities have engaged with their constituents to measure this impact, so that it can be conveyed to legislators and other cultural funding entities. Links to existing surveys can be found here:
