ACHF Arts Access
Provide five concerts in summer 2018 that will reach more than 125 in attendance at each event. We have increased our participation from neighboring towns, and we would like to see that continue to grow so that we see 150 in attendance. We would like to see the attendance by young people (children) grow to 25 per event. We will count the attendees at each concert and record the numbers.
Our measurable outcomes as related to our goals include attendance numbers, with increased numbers from neighboring towns and attendance by younger people (children). 4 of the 5 concerts had attendance over 120; children were an increased presence in 3 of 5 concerts; new faces from neighboring towns, with increased numbers were seen at 4 of 5 concerts.
