ACHF Arts Access
The project will deliver 30-minute concerts to 1,000 or more seniors underserved by the arts who are living in residential care centers in ten plus cities. Post-project evaluations to include phone follow up with care center staff and Sounds of Hope review sessions will indicate a 50-50 mix of new venues and return venues, with post-concert feedback from care center staff indicating good results with outcomes and a strong commitment to implementing future arts programming in each venue. 2: The project will travel to and reach 1,000 care center residents who do not participate fully in the arts, including those with memory loss and confining physical conditions. Staff will collect data from care center staff about participants attending events, to include ranges of ages, physical and mental conditions, frequency of arts participation in prior two years, and future arts project possibilities and needs.
Concerts were scheduled and presented in facilities in seven cities. To improve efficiency, we did multiple concerts in some cities rather than traveling to the ten cities first planned. 2: The project outcome was exceeded. Approximately 1,200 seniors experiencing significant disabilities and other obstacles to arts participation were reached.
