The approximate 2,300 people who will attend workshops, presentations, concerts and events will be impacted by the language, music, and instruments each group will bring with them. The target audience is young people; however, the community as a whole will benefit from the interaction and integration that is a hallmark of these Arts Midwest World Fest activities.Time for Question and Answer in talk back sessions will be a further opportunity for audience members to gain a better understanding of the culture and art of the musicians. These sessions will document the ways in which audiences have been impacted with an appreciation for music and artistry of another culture.
There was an increase in the number of audience numbers attending the presentations at schools. The projected numbers were 2,300 for each group. 2771 attended the Paulo Padilha group and 4226 attended the Shanren group performances. These visits provided unique arts and cultural experiences for pall participants. The most significant response came from students at Ponemah and Red Lake as they interacted with Shanren from China. The percussive music visibly resonated with the native students at these schools.
