Arts Tour Minnesota
ACHF Arts Access
The regional community will have access to high quality literary arts and the opportunity to study with other writers in an intimate setting. We measure attendance at events, distribute and collect questionnaires, track book sales, and record comments through interviews. Staff get to know attendees well and encourage feedback. And we expect great leaps in craft, confidence and motivation. 2: We will continue to expand and strengthen our relationships with cultural and artistic partners in the region and the state. We will mail or email surveys to arts, literary, and cultural organizations, as well as educational partners and the tribes, to gauge the impact of the conference. Staff will follow-up by phone to solicit suggestions.
MNWC increased appreciation for literary arts and increased access to award-winning writers from the national literary scene in outstate Minnesota. A sign-in form collects demographic information. Anonymous evaluation forms assess the experience of participants, interns, and faculty at the end of the conference. The 3-page form was developed in collaboration with BSU's social work and psychology departments and consists of simple open-ended questions to solicit informative responses. We also measure attendance, track book sales, and record comments through interviews. The staff gets to know attendees and encourages feedback. 2: We remain in close contact with many nonprofits and educational and tribal institutions in order to support aspiring writers. We send mailings and emails to a network of partners who share our interest in supporting emerging writers. Follow up is by phone conversation. We judge our success by how many writers we have been able to help attend the conference to further their craft and their career. When we can partner with an institution to bring someone to the conference who otherwise could not attend - and that person benefits and other participants benefit from their presence - we consider that a success.
