We have 4 new emerging artists participating in our Partners program in 2021. They are currently being matched up with mentors and will be announced soon.
We are excited to have both our 2020 and 2021 Partnerships, with a total of 16 artist mentors and mentees, in an exhibit at the Bountiful Davis Art Center in January 2022.
Through our continued partnership with the Utah Division of Arts and Museums and the Dumke Jr. Foundation, our third cohort of cultural organizations from across the state is underway. After this cohort is complete, more than 30 organizations will have completed our 12 hour cultural accessibility training. To learn more about this program and our partnership, click below.
I participated in the intensive Breaking Barriers training and it was fantastic. It was eye-opening to understand the civil rights, culture and community, and accessibility standards that I, although attending many ADA trainings, still only barely understood. Their training was well informed, kind, and propelled my organization to make real change for our whole community.
