ACHF Arts Access
100% of participants who utilize the adaptive equipment purchased through this grant will feel they've gained greater independence in making art. We aim to provide custom-made adaptive equipment for at least ten artists who have never used it before. We plan to evaluate the success of our project through the use of surveys, staff reports, quantitative and qualitative data. We will use the data we collect to adjust the project in real time as well as inform future programming.
