Arts Tour Minnesota
ACHF Arts Access
The project will create a cross-generational conversation about the many rich themes of the show—World War II, the immigrant experience, war’s impact on family life. The post-show discussions will elicit remarkable stories from fellow community members, stories of sacrifice, loss, valor and redemption. These stories and the audience response to the show will be the measure of evaluation. 2: The tour will visit four new communities and return to four new communities for deeper experiences for more Minnesotans. We are reaching new audiences in four new communities and by returning to four other venues, we will renew and deepen the relationships that were begun and enable more residents from those towns to experience what had such great impact on the first tour.
Patrick brought WWII to life in eight regions. As an artist, he developed his improvisational skills to tailor the content to a variety of audiences including many who do not normally attend theater. 2: The tour was created with a goal of reaching far beyond the Twin Cities and we reached 13 Minnesota counties with a high quality, well received, impactful theater piece.
