ACHF Arts Access
Strengthen a relationship with the Wadena, East Otter Tail, and Todd County Fairs in order to increase capacity to present high quality arts events and arts learning activities. 1) The Fair Boards will identify the Cultural Center as a partner in arts presentation. 2) The arts will take a more prominent place in the Fair promotions in 2013 as compared to 2012. 2: 1,500 low income persons in Otter Tail, Wadena, and Todd Counties will experience arts learning or arts presentation at the 2013 county fairs. 1) A tally of the persons attending events will be made. 2. Focus group assessments will be completed by fair patrons and by Fair Board members.
The Cultural Center was successful in strengthening its relationships with the East Otter Tail County Fair and the Todd County Fair. The Wadena County Fair experience was not as fully realized as was hoped for. The Center will be undertaking collaborations with both the Todd County and East Otter Tail County Fairs in the future. There has been a significant growth in understanding of the boards of both the Cultural Center and the County Fairs of the importance of bringing the arts to the community. 2: The total number of persons participating in the events of the three fairs exceeded the projection of 1,500 low income participants. 2,500 persons participated in the project at three county fairs and 36 artists brought their talents and creative expression to three Fairs.
