Utah Works

Utah Works is a new series of short stories about the way we work in Utah, told in participants’ own words, airing on Utah Public Radio at the following days and times:

Wednesdays at 3:30 and 4:30 p.m.

Thursdays at 7:41 and 8:41 a.m.

Sundays at 4:35 p.m.

Mondays at 11:33:35 a.m.

Utah Works is based on The Way We Worked, which is a traveling exhibition, created by the Smithsonian Institution and the National Archives, that explores how work became such a central element in American culture. The Way We Worked is touring to six Utah communities during 2017. As part of the exhibition tour, Utah Humanities and Utah Public Radio are partnering with Ogden Union Station and Hyrum City Museum to interview local residents about their work.  

Utah Works is a collaboration between UPR, Utah Humanities, Ogden Union Station, and Hyrum City Museum, and is based on The Way We Worked exhibition. The Way We Worked has been made possible in Utah by Utah Humanities. The exhibition, created by the National Archives, is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and State Humanities Councils nationwide. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.

Broadcast of Utah Works on UPR is supported by our listeners and USU’s Department of History.
