Mixed Blood Theatre draws 300 self-identified Africans and Muslims to the seven featured plays. Audience survey will query for race, religion, previous experience with theatre; tally of African/Muslim attendance at seven plays; tally of FULL audience who come to Mixed Blood Theatre for first time during these shows. 2: Content of seven plays, Muslim and African actors and artist/liaison's outreach overcome barriers of cultural relevance and lack of familiarity with theatre. Record of artist/liaison outreach; audience survey queries race, religion, experience with any theatre in the past, reasons for attendance; impressions of show(s).
Approximately 2,390 guests attended the seven plays with 7% of those audiences being African/Muslim guests. Approximately 24% were first-time visitors to MBT. Since the launch of Radical Hospitality in 2011, Mixed Blood's survey methods have become a core part of institutional practice and have garnered a successful 90% return rate. Survey results are compiled, analyzed and extrapolated to give staff and board information about both quantitative and qualitative success. Like most elements of Mixed Blood's work, the process and use of the surveying tools continues to evolve to discover better, more accurate and detailed practices. 2: The content of the seven plays told relevant stories by, for, about and with Africans and Muslims in America to a total audience of approximately 2,390 people. In addition to Mixed Blood's traditional survey methods that are implemented, assessed and extrapolated, this particular effort increased its attention to qualitative results. Led by Mixed Blood's Community Liaison and Producer-in-Residence, regular conversations with community members about content, outreach methods and perceived success were institutionally internalized and documented. The sum of this data resulted in drawn conclusions about future programming and space use for community purpose.
