Folk Arts Funding


Funding to support folk, ethnic and traditional arts is available on an annual basis. The opportunities assist individual artists and cultural communities in developing, perpetuating or presenting their own traditional art forms.

  • Arts Project Grants target local grass-roots organizations and artists, both urban and rural, throughout the state, assisting them in planning new projects and obtaining the seed money needed to leverage greater community support. Folk artists are eligible to apply for other Utah Arts & Museums funding throughout the year.
  • Folk Arts Apprenticeships support master folk artists to pass on cultural traditions to selected students. One-time funding. Deadline: Semi-annual.
  • Folk Arts Cultural Preservation Grants assist individual artists, organizations, and cultural communities in documenting and presenting their traditional art forms. One-time funding. Deadline: Rolling, reviewed quarterly.
