ACHF Arts Access
I will complete pre-production of a new film, showing the work-in-progress and engaging a diverse audience at two public screenings, followed by discussion sessions. Attendance will be taken at the public screenings and comments cards will be provided to the audience for additional feedback. Wider audiences will be able to access the material online and encouraged to leave comments.
Presenting work-in-progress helped me provide a wide range of Minnesotans a chance to engage with the work of equally diverse Minnesota artists. In order to evaluate the degree to which the project achieved the proposed outcome I took attendance but also paid attention to the diversity of people who attended. I took photographs of the first event, videotaped the second, and at both events held question and answer sessions that lasted over 45 minutes. At both events I invited people to visit my soon-to-launched website and encouraged them to leave comments there as well.
