Arts and Cultural Heritage Grant for Organizations

Audience members will be introduced to musical instruments they are not familiar with. Audience members will become aware of the music of certain featured regions of different parts of Scandinavia. Some audience members will be encouraged to learn how to play some of these new instruments or to bring out an old instrument maybe hidden away in the closet. The residents of the Bagley area will have an expectation of arts opportunities right in their hometown. We will be using a new method to evaluate this project called World Cafe. We will use a modified World Cafe method to measure the outcomes listed above. We will design cards that have each of the questions typed on them and ask the concert goers to pick one that best fits their experience for the concert they are attending. The cards will be deposited in a small box located on each table. The Bagley Area Arts Collaborative board will tabulate the findings and make adjustments for the following concerts.
We think it was beneficial in helping us determine what people came away from the concerts with. We used three questions, each one was on a 3x5 card in an envelope. Each concert attendee received an envelope at the first two concerts. It was informative for our group to realize that roughly: 85% heard music from a region of Scandinavia they had not heard before. 90% heard an instrument played they had not seen before. 75% learned new information about traditional music and clothing.
