ACHF Arts Access
More Minnesotans, especially those in the Southwest Minnesota Region, will be able to participate in the arts.The attached survey will allow the Central Park Market committee to determine the basic demographics of participants at the Market, what draws them to the Market, what their feelings are on the musical performance piece of the Market, and how they engage with these performances. The survey also allows input for suggestions on other local musical talent that participants would like to see at the Market. The survey will be distributed to all participants and vendors at the Market on the opening date and the closing date for the market season. The information gathered in the survey will be compiled by the Committee, and the results will allow the Committee to evaluate if the Market needs to do more work on achieving its goal of promoting the discovery of local musical talent among Cottonwood area residents.
Generally, there was an increase in the number of times that households visited the market for the 2014 season, but they spend slightly less time at the market this year. There was a meaningful increase in the number of respondents saying that they think music is a very important aspect of the Market and the committee generated some helpful suggestions from the surveys. There was a slight decrease in respondents that said that their knowledge of local musical talent was greatly improved over the 2014 season, with an increase stating that their knowledge was only slightly improved. This may be attributed to the fact that may of the respondents had the opportunity to enjoy many of these musicians during the 2013 market season.
