We use the term “cultural” in every sense of the word.
We understand humanity is made up of many different cultures, and that’s the first step in creating social belonging. Cultural engagement is participation, advocacy, and cultivation of the diverse characteristics of all Utahns. We are also reminded that we are a part of history, and we continue to define our future as we volunteer, preserve the past, and amplify all voices.
Life is enhanced through celebration, innovation, science, music, art, literature, and traditions. It provides social and economic value to communities, and it opens our eyes to the unique traits that make Utah’s people.
We enrich quality of life.
Thrive125 | Celebrating Utah's Statehood
Thrive125 is a celebration of Utah's 125th anniversary of statehood. It is also a chance to honestly discuss our relationships to each other, to the nation as a whole, and to the land itself.
The Museum of Utah
It’s being a part of something greater than ourselves.
A strong community collaborates to solve issues and fosters a sense of togetherness through shared cultural experiences. A community’s cultural assets are the pentacle of its pride and uniqueness. These assets can be leveraged to attract economic opportunities or used to reinforce belonging among its people.
In addition to measuring cultural health, CCE is also a resource hub for your towns. Through our many strong private and agency partnerships, your community can tap our knowledge to identify the best ways to fill the gaps in your host of offerings.
Our Seven Divisions
We align our programmatic efforts to activate the social and civic engagement needed to cultivate creativity, reinforce a sense of belonging, and encourage collaboration. Each division's work positively impacts individuals, communities, and ultimately the intangible heart of the state.
