ACHF Arts Access ACHF Arts Education
The goal of “art access” for audience members is a positive change in attitude and desire to attend theater arts events. Arts education aspects experienced by local theater artists will include an increased desire to pursue working in and learning about the theater arts as well as an increase in artistic skills that will be able to be applied to future career goals.A positive change in audience attitude and desire to attend theater events will be measured through feedback solicited via Twitter- directly following the event; a survey accessible on the Paul Bunyan Playhouse web site, Facebook responses, and a paper survey available in audience programs and administered to members of the community who are participating in the summer program.
Audience surveys overwhelmingly indicated that they enjoyed their theatrical experience with 40% agreeing that the experience got them to thinking about new ideas and 42% stated that they thought about things differently after seeing the production. A comment was made “I hate musicals, but this was a fun play. I enjoyed it. Can’t wait for next year’s musical.” Surveys of the local theater artists indicated that they gained artistic skills that they can apply to future career goals.
