ACHF Arts Access
It is our hope that this project will encourage residents to gather together in community, to expand their general knowledge of familiar arts, and to take the opportunity to explore something new. In the course of this summer and fall, we will be able to gauge audience participation in and reception of our various programs. The most basic measure of success will be attendance. If we can see an increase in attendance for each event, based on past performance, we can count the event successful to some degree. We will take attendance counts via a guest book/head count at the art show, and headcounts at all other events. Our evaluation tool will be handed out at every event and posted on the city website, with links via social media.
We developed a survey form passed out at each event. We noticed more draw from surrounding towns than from our own community. As few as 6% of attendees were local (traveled farther than 5 miles) at any given event. The highest local turnout compared to out-of-towners was 27%. 100% of attendees rated their level of satisfaction at good or excellent (67% and 33%, respectively. Suggestions for improvement consisted of other musical acts and movies.
