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.
According to the participant questionnaire we distributed to the cast members, of the teens involved in Seussical Jr., the satisfaction rate (on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the best) for their entire experience was 8.9. According to the questionnaire we distributed to the parents of the cast members involved in Seussical Jr., the satisfaction rate (on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the best)of the entire experience was 9.6. We had 14 respondents out of 21, which is an excellent measure. We also asked if they thought the tuition was in line with what the student received, if they would be interested in another show for next year, and what they thought about the rehearsal schedule, among other things. It is an excellent tool to gather information for support for next year and for us to know what we did right and how we can improve. We had many audience members who had never attended one of our shows before. We seemed to have tapped into a whole new demographic, one even different from the one from when we did Annie two years ago. We had many, many preschoolers in the audience and they seemed to have had a marvelous time. I had a mother email two days ago and said that her four-year-old son was still talking about Seussical and singing bits of the show all around the house. It was perhaps the best project we've done in years, in that it was such an excellent teaching tool and we finally tapped into our area youths.
