Arts Tour Minnesota
ACHF Arts Access
Broaden exposure to diverse cultures and traditions in communities that often do not have access to high-quality, global performing arts opportunities. We evaluate by soliciting feedback and conducting follow-up conversations with students, teachers, community partners, and the artists; and with quantitative data on community-artist interactions in final reports from our community partners. 2: Build the capacity of our partner organization to continue to use this immersive residency model in future programming. We evaluate by measuring new and sustained partnerships with local schools, continued programming featuring international ensembles, and evidence of new/increased local support for the organization.
Arts Midwest broadened access to high quality arts experiences for Minnesotans by presenting two world music ensembles in Thief River Falls, Minnesota. Arts Midwest uses both qualitative and quantitative tools to measure impact. We evaluate by soliciting online feedback from students and community members during and after the residencies, conducting visits, and monitoring compliance with partnership requirements. Final report materials from NMAC included an activity schedule with attendance; a financial report; and a narrative noting meaningful connections, any residency challenges, and how the local community was engaged. 2: Arts Midwest's community partner forged deeper relationships with area school districts to support the project residencies. Arts Midwest used both qualitative and quantitative assessment tools to measure program effectiveness and impact. For the public performance component of the tour, we compiled information from community presenters on attendance and community-artist interaction, and we solicited general feedback. We also collected final reports from community arts presenters, which include data on constituents served; narrative on their interaction with the artists, and impact of the program in the community.
