Arts Tour Minnesota
ACHF Arts Access
The project will allow me to perform concerts and do outreach in greater Minnesota. This outcome will be evaluated at project end. I will take a close look at my budget and determine whether artists were paid reasonably (as projected) and if communities received reasonably reduced artist fees in lieu of the grant event. 2: This project allows me to travel to three new communities: Dassel/Cokato, Fairmont, and International Falls. This outcome will be achieved at the end of each respective grant-funded event. If funding is received, we will know that we achieved the outcome of performing in 3 new communities right after we perform.
I and my artistic partners were paid fair wages for our work while being able to tour five brand new outstate communities. Through our outreach in Koochiching County, we actually toured an additional two communities, Littlefork and Northome. We strengthened our relationship with Albert Lea and Moorhead. In Albert Lea, we performed two improv outreach programs, expanding our and the presenting partner's relationships in the community. In Moorhead, we expanded on our past outreach experiences by rehearsing and performing in a public concert with the students. The presenting partners were able to work with reasonably reduced rates in lieu of the grant-funding. Amy Stearns, executive director at Detroit Lakes' Historic Holmes Theatre, stated that she had always been interested in working with me, but couldn't make the money work. With the grant-funding, Amy was able to bring us in for outreach and a concert. 2: After contract amendment, five of the seven partnered communities were brand new to us. Our experience with new communities was amazing! I.e., performing eight different educational outreach programs in Koochiching county in conjunction with a capstone concert in International Falls. Our outreach contact in Northome stated, Without a doubt, there are students that heard them play that would not have had the opportunity to hear them if this had not been presented at our school. What a wonderful talented group! We expanded our relationship in Albert Lea where we performed two outreach programs - our workshop.
