ACHF Arts Access
Intermedia Arts will build and deepen relationships with 15 community organizations in order to increase access for 1,500 members of our identified communities. Hire an outside evaluator to track participation by members of our Identified Communities, and will survey partner organizations to assess the efficacy of the initiative. 2: Identify and mitigate barriers of cost, transportation, visibility, representation, and engagement with ongoing input from our identified communities. Track the usage of these accessibility initiatives by our identified communities and survey participants to learn how effective the initiatives were at reducing barriers.
We built and deepened relationships with thirty-eight organizations and increased access to 1,600 members of our identified communities. All youth participants, adult mentors, and audience members completed surveys to evaluate their experiences. Evaluation firm FaceValu also conducted interviews with key project participants such as teaching artists, performers, youth leaders, curatorial associates, community partners, and Intermedia Arts programs staff. These results were compiled into a report to be shared with staff, youth, board members, and artists in order to gage the impact of the program and to improve future iterations. 2: Access barriers (including new ones identified by community in the grant period) were mitigated, enabling 1,600 more people to engage and participate. Youth and adult mentors were surveyed to determine the impact of the events, how they heard about the opportunities, and how the provided transportation helped in their decision to attend. Partner organization staff were interviewed about how the accessibility resources helped their constituents become engaged with Intermedia Arts. Demographic information was collected about participants in art activities to ensure that the targeted communities were being served.
