Events for Volunteer Opportunities

Utah Arts Festival

The Utah Arts Festival brings art to life at Library Square through awe-inspiring performances, artistic expression, and surprising discoveries at the state’s largest outdoor multi-disciplinary arts event June 21-24. The Utah Arts Festival features 160+ visual artists and 100+ performing arts groups, drawing 80,000+ participants each June to celebrate artistic expression in the heart of Salt Lake City. The Festival includes seven performing venues of top world, national and local musicians and performers and program slates in literary arts, visual arts, kids activities, dance performances, musical commissions, street theater, art & technology, urban arts, film and culinary arts. During this four-day celebration of the arts, Festival patrons will discover the sky is not the limit—courtesy of BANDALOOP. In its 42nd year, the Utah Arts Festival welcomes BANDALOOP, an internationally renowned dance company that awakens the human spirit and activates public spaces. In what they dub vertical dance, BANDALOOP seamlessly weaves dynamic physicality, intricate choreography, and the art of climbing—by utilizing the unique curving glass façade of the Downtown Library as their stage. BANDALOOP will perform each night during the 2018 Utah Arts Festival.

Volunteer Orientation: Bird Docent

Become a Bird Docent Volunteer and experience the wonder of raptors, first hand, while helping HWI expand its education mission! Bird Docent volunteers assist in providing community outreach programs with HawkWatch International's education birds. Volunteers are taught how to handle our non-releasable education birds, learn about birds of prey and our various programs, and then take the birds out to community programs to teach about raptor ecology and conservation. We do request a time commitment of volunteers and ask that they assist with some general bird care duties. If you would like to become a Bird Docent volunteer for HawkWatch International, please attend this orientation where you will meet the birds and Nikki Wayment, HawkWatch International's Education and Community Outreach Director.
