Arts Legacy Grant
ACHF Arts Access
The variety and number of arts opportunities in Northwest Minnesota will increase through this opportunity for the general public to interact with the artists and attend workshops on their special interests. Evaluation will occur through an audience questionnaire, personal observation of activities, follow up meeting with project planners, attendance numbers, and interviews.
Our goals were met by bringing people out and some who had never been to Old Mill before. Though we hoped for more the very hot weather that day cut numbers down but still we were happy with the crowd. Our events main program had a type of performing artist which we have never had before. People watch and listened spell bound for over one hour and half. We could of never of had such a program without an arts grant. Through interviews, personal observations and surveys we learned that our day was a great success. As one lady put it -it was the best ever. Others wanted more of the same next year. We believe lives were changed through this performer with her desire to make people laugh and her stating that laughter is good medicine. Along with her using audience participation in skits and songs it was a day that visitors talked about long after they left.
