ACHF Arts Access
Goals include providing a community event that offers a variety of music and art genres, exposing festival goers to new music, giving artists an opportunity to share, display and showcase their material, increasing local business sponsorships, and increasing the number of commemorative buttons that are sold. Survey of the sponsors before and after the festival. Random survey of attendees during the festival. Encourage attendees to contact any committee member with comments and thoughts about the event. An attendee count will also be conducted using numbered wrist bands each night of the event as attendees enter the main performance area. For those who choose not to enter the festival grounds, but prefer to sit in other areas of the park, a head count will be done periodically by the committee.
The Prairie Ecology Bus staff planned for 95 'fairy gardens' to be constructed by children at the event. They were prepared to guide children through building fairy gardens in two 2-hour sessions each day. They did run very low on supplies, and ran out of the 95 containers that they prepared for. The Jackson Center for the Arts held Art and Face Painting on both days of the event. They also ran out of supplies, and found that they would have benefited from more volunteers. They will plan to keep their booth open for at least 3 hours each day for next year's events. Gate donations were highest on Friday evening, and it is known that people who donated on Friday night returned for Saturday night but did not make an additional donation.
