Arts Tour Minnesota
ACHF Arts Access
Concerts in homeless shelters, veterans facilities and community centers in five rural Minnesota communities. Collective songwriting session one-day prior in site facilities, so their voices can be heard. Via audience surveys, informal conversations, and post-project meetings, we will determine how this project has advanced the needs of forgotten populations and audiences, and individuals/organizations that support them. 2: Community Celebration of Place will work with organizational sites that would not have the capacity to host us without support from the Minnesota State Arts Board and other partners. Through observation and post-project meetings, we will gauge how forgotten populations and audiences and host organizations benefited from the opportunity to work with an experienced touring group like American Roots Revue, as well as from other community partnerships forged through this project.
American Roots Revue performed at a highly professional level in five rural Minnesota communities. Five collectively written songs were created in partnership with community organizations. 2: American Roots Revue shined a light on each of these communities through song and celebration and, therefore, became a thread that tied these communities together through a shared experience.
