Magnify Utah

Connecting Communities, Places & Multicultural Stories

| A Resource & Learning Hub


The "Magnify Utah" project is a compilation of stories, people, and places featuring StoryMaps, an asset mapping directory, & multicultural placemaking principles. It will also invite community members and leaders to contribute stories and information, so that we can all better magnify and share the diversifying story of the Utah experience. 


A Sense of place, a sense of belonging



Let's make space for community-informed, growth-filled, and healing conversations and learning. This page will also elevate partner projects with similar missions to centralize information and continue to share ways to celebrate Utah's growing diversity.

Utah: A Place for Everyone



A Welcoming Message from Governor Spencer J. Cox

If you’re new to Utah, welcome. We are happy to have you. If you’ve been here for a while, we’re happy you’re here.


Note: This project was previously called "Multicultural Placemaking & Community Belonging"  and has since changed to better capture the vision for these resources. Governor Cox may reference the older name, but the goals remain the same. 

Project Goals



CONNECT

Start conversations about place, identity, and opportunity by leading with a growth mindset and continued learning.

ELEVATE

Bring awareness to the presence, contributions, and dynamic strengths of multicultural communities.


CENTRALIZE

Provide a comprehensive and living collection of multicultural spaces, history, and stories.


EMPOWER

Provide opportunities to co-create materials and rely on communities to fill in gaps by writing and submitting pieces.

PARTNERS TO MAGNIFY



Those who made this project possible.

These partnerships will support and share content for ongoing development and will also help evolve the community-led creation of StoryMaps and place-based stories. Other community organizations that are engaged in similar efforts will be elevated on the online platform to avoid duplication and celebrate grassroots efforts.
