Arts Tour Minnesota
ACHF Arts Access
Through performances at their local library, Minnesotans in twenty-four communities will gain a better understanding of the music and stories of another culture. We will track the number of libraries. Each performance is followed by an informal discussion with, and written feedback from, the audience. These will let us evaluate if (and what) attendees learned.
Minnesotans from 35 small to mid-size towns experienced another culture through music and storytelling and learned about that culture. We tracked number of libraries. Performances were followed by informal discussion with audience. Many audience members also completed an evaluation that asked what they learned, how they heard about the event, and what they thought of the performance.
