Arts Tour Minnesota
ACHF Arts Access
Minnesota professional artists and arts organizations have more opportunities to tour their work throughout the state. Minnesota professional artists and arts organizations tour to communities and regions they haven’t previously visited.
I was able to tour my work to six performing arts centers and theaters throughout my home state of Minnesota. This particular outcome is self-explanatory. I received the grant-funding which allowed me to partner with out-state presenters and therefore I had more opportunities to tour my work. 2: I was able to bring my new show, AT CHRISTMAS, to five communities in which the show had never been seen and partner with a theater (Pioneer Place in St Cloud) that has supported us since the start of our show in 2009. This goes back to my partnership with New Folk Booking – I consider that partnership my method or tool. New Folk Booking was able to utilize their relationship with Minnesota Presenters Network and encourage them to come to my showcase at the Midwest Arts Conference. From there, we gained five presenting partners who, before then, hadn’t even heard of or seen the show. In the same way, New Folk Booking was able to generate interest for partnerships on my proposed fiscal year 2013 Arts Tour grant project.
