The Mountain West Arts Conference (MWAC) is an annual, statewide conference for those working in – or connected to – Utah’s arts sector. Its goal is to connect arts/museums administrators, individual artists, college students, and arts educators, in addition to providing professional development opportunities. We believe this conference is a unique opportunity for members of the arts community to gather together to network, learn practical tools, and be inspired.

We are excited to announce that we are providing scholarships for university and college students to attend this year’s conference. The scholarship would cover the cost of the registration fee and the Governor’s Award Luncheon. If you know any students who would like to take advantage of this opportunity, please send them this email. Scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, and preference is given to first time attendees. Art Works for Kids! has generously provided support for these scholarships.

Our keynote speaker will be Colleen Macklin, Associate Professor in Design and Technology at Parsons School of Design. She will share her work around art, design, game design, and technology–featuring her own game “The Metagame”.
