ACHF Arts Access
SteppingStone will roll out the Welcome Mat for its closest neighbors, many of whom are underserved by the arts, with shared meals and arts programs. Audience totals and surveys will be tools used to confirm numbers of participants, residence within targeted zone, and previous experience with the arts. 2: Barriers to participation are diminished or eliminated with subsidized tickets, free shared meals and summer camp scholarships. Surveys, number of free/reduced lunch participants, audience totals.
Families shared post-show communal meals with artistic staff and actors. 53 youth, identified as challenged by poverty and perceived barriers to inclusion received scholarships for summer camps. SteppingStone Theatre surveyed audience and camp attendees, youth camp participants and reviewed attendance for performances and camps. Participants were surveyed onsite and through electronic surveys. 2: By removing financial concerns, more Minnesota families were able to participate in the arts at SteppingStone Theatre than before. Families were surveyed, asked to fill out a scholarship application, and evaluated against program records.
