ACHF Cultural Heritage
The Museum has four major goals for this project: First, to create access to the theatrical arts at an affordable price in our rural communities, which have little to no exposure to this type of performance art. Second, to foster a sense of value and appreciation for art and history. Third, to build partnerships with local county art and history organizations that build future public programming and reach a more diverse and board audience. Fourth, to preserve the history of our county and to open up a dialog about rural life in the 1920s, 30s and 40s and how that has shaped our county to-date and how understanding this history will impact our future.The Museum will use ticket sales and attendance counts to determine the access level of the project, along with a detailed survey that will focus on the impact that the performance had on them and the value and appreciation they had for having the opportunity to attend. The survey will also cover how they heard about the performance and if they are currently affiliated with any of the four art and history organizations involved. Future programming partnerships between the art and history organizations will also be recorded as an achievement of our goals. The Museum also hopes to promote sharing of stories of rural life in McLeod County by offering a blog site on their website and will challenge other organizations to do the same. These stories will be preserved in the Museum's digital archive and used as a part of our historical research collection that is open to the public.
