ACHF Arts Education
The quantity and types of arts learning opportunities in the state, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. Arts learning opportunities are more accessible to Minnesota because barriers to participation have been identified and mitigated. More Minnesotans are engaged in arts learning opportunities.
The Loft was able to offer three additional conferences at our facilities in Open Book (Minneapolis), and our first conference was held off-site at the Audubon Center of the North Woods (Sandstone). We evaluated the degree to which we achieved the outcome by collecting number of registrants, and surveys completed by conference participants that included participant demographics and qualitative assessments. 2: In addition to providing activities in accessible spaces and providing accessible accommodations for weekend conferences, the Loft purchased assistive listening devices for our classrooms at Open Book to address hearing issues that patrons may have when activities are taking place in all classrooms. To assess accessibility, we collected qualitative feedback via surveys, and discussed among the staff how participant needs were met. We provided two of the conferences free of charge: the two-day Creative Writing Conference for Writers 50 and Better, and the one-day Teen Novel Writing Conference. To assess this effort, we tracked registrations, and we asked participants to rate their satisfaction with the conference and its associated fee.
