Arts Tour Minnesota
ACHF Arts Access
Minnesota professional artists and arts organizations have more opportunities to tour their work throughout the state. One will expect a level of ease and fluency; and increased competence with multiple performances. 2: Because of the dynamics of small towns, a greater percentage of the average citizenry will attend classical music events. Based on audience data of previous years, and addresses of ticket buyers we will compare both numbers, towns and occupations represented in the audiences of each performance venue. A new survey requesting more demographic information will be created.
The NLMF tour reached thousands of Minnesota residents; creating opportunities for Minnesota artists to work professionally. Surveys which answered questions about residence, and their use of corollary services, such as restaurants, hotels and fuel, gave us answers about our audiences. Results showed that as many of 10% of the population of several towns on the Range bought tickets for NLMF events. Other larger cities had a smaller percentage of attendees. It also showed that approximately 15% of attendees were summer residents, mostly from Minnesota, but representing 26 states as well. 2: Based on zip codes of ticket buyers from various Range towns, we can approximate the percentage of citizens who attended the events. A survey was distributed at every opera performance, seeking information about the residence of each audience member. We sought to know, if money had been spent locally, and where; in other words, to learn what the economic implications are of our activities. Online ticket buyers' zip codes are not revealed to us, but by cross referencing our general mailing list we can find them. We also capture the addresses and Zip Codes of those who write checks or who use credit cards.
