ACHF Arts Access
The main goal is #3. Instilling the arts into the community and public life: Having a visible event downtown and at such a scenic location by the footbridge along the Minnesota River creates a different atmosphere in town, people stop and listen to the music and participate in workshops because it's outside. I will count the number of attendees at the market, workshops and have the surveys available at all the events.
