Arts Legacy Grant
ACHF Arts Access
The quality and number of arts opportunities in Northwest Minnesota will increase through executive staff developing a children's theater program and expanding offerings at the Northland Community and Technical College. Evaluation will occur through a participant questionnaire, personal observation of activities, follow up meetings, attendance numbers, and interviews.
Our audience numbers were excellent in the summer of 2015. We ended the season with approx. 2,400 seats sold out of a possible 3,200 (75% capacity). We auditioned over 100 performers and cast all but 6 of them (scheduling issues). We did a questionnaire at the end of the season for performers of the new teen show. It was very successful and we will incorporate some of those ideas into 2016. We always meet as a board after each production and carefully go over details of the production, including satisfaction with directors and other paid staff. We changed lives--especially area teens--by offering bigger and better shows. Hometown Talent Show was all-inclusive and we found places for every individual who tried out. It was a VERY successful community event with positive feedback from audience members through face-to-face meetings and social media.
