Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We will host an exhibit opening that remains on display for a month; there will be at least 200 photo exhibitions. Of the participants, 33% will be individuals who have not exhibited artwork before, 33% will be from an underrepresented racial / cultural or low-income community, and 33% of the guests in attendance will be people who have not been to AICHO before (we anticipate these three demographics overlapping with each other to some extent). Of the participants who are new to our space or to exhibiting in general, we would like to see them return for future events, and overall, we're looking to increase awareness of AICHO as a COMMUNITY arts venue that is open to all. We will gather attendance information and conduct a survey that gathers information on demographics (age, ethnicity, optional income question, etc.), whether or not guests have attended an AICHO event before, what the highlights of the event were, what could be improved for next year, how they heard about the event, and whether or not they would like to participate again next year.
