onstage in utah - FY22 Applications now open
Deadline: July 16, 2021

Utah Arts & Museums recognizes the important role of Utah’s presenters in connecting performing artists with audiences and communities. OnStage in Utah provides presenters funding to support a public performance, as well as a separate community outreach activity by in-state or out-of-state performing artists. Funding is competitive and is not based on previous organizational funding levels. No organization is guaranteed funding from one year to the next.
