ACHF Arts Access
More Minnesotans, especially those in the Southwest Minnesota Region, will be able to participate in the arts.We will compare ticket sales with 2013 and track where people are coming from through sales outlet locations and online ticket sales. An on-site map activity will track more locations by including a visual pin-board map. At the information area or where most practical, we will assemble a map with pins so people can place where they are from. This tool will be useful and also a fun way to build excitement for RiverSong as people visually see the festival drawing fans from various locations. These evaluation methods will help us track location of people served as well as help us evaluate our marketing efforts. We will be able to track how location of bands, placed advertising and other promotional efforts impact attendee locations.
We successfully trained in two new committee co-chairs, part of our site and security and hospitality succession planning. We retained 7 of 10 steering committee members for 2015. We had 30 returning sponsors (from all previous years) and 6 new sponsors. We recruited 140 volunteers. We featured 16 high-quality, diverse artists. Planning retreated brought 45 people and helped us recruit 12 new committee volunteers.
