ACHF Arts Access
The main goal of Central Park Market is to host an event where area residents become in local offerings ranging from food, crafts, art and talent. Regarding the musical aspect, we want residents to not only become aware of the local talent that we have but to grow in their appreciation of this talent. A measurable goal for the Market this season will be to determine if audience members were already familiar with the musical talent and type of music. A survey will allow us to determine the basic demographics of participants, what draws them to the Market, what their feelings are on the musical talent, and how they engage with the music. The survey also allows input for suggestions on other local musical talent that they would like to see at the Market.
For the musical talent aspect of the Market, survey responses were overwhelmingly positive in regards to participants' opinions on having a musical talent component. Participants noted the positive contributions that the music provided to the overall atmosphere of the Market and the opportunity to hear local musical talent that many participants would otherwise not have the opportunity to hear. Because of the shorter Market season this year, the Market committee had to limit the number of artist that played at the Market. By doing this, the committee limited musical talent to many of the favorites that have played at the Market in the past, thus limiting the exposure to new musical talent and new types of music among participants.
