ACHF Arts Access
Milkweed Editions will offer unique community programming, based on each author's work and expertise, to new and expanded audiences across Minnesota. We will evaluate how well we reach new and expanded audiences with our programming by measuring attendance rates, community partner engagement, book sales, and local media coverage. 2: We will spark conversation between Minnesotans and authors around themes in their books, their creative process, and the importance of literature. We will evaluate the success of our tour programming by conducting surveys of attendees and partners, as well as by measuring online engagement analytics, to better inform our future events and tours.
Milkweed Editions partnered with twelve communities across Minnesota to provide unique and engaging arts experiences to new audiences. We tracked event attendance and surveyed our community partners about the efficacy of our event planning and promotion strategies, including local media coverage. 2: Minnesotans made meaningful connections with two authors about reading, writing, and the value of literature. We evaluated the impact of the tour by posing survey questions to community partners and audience members aimed at learning what people responded to and found most meaningful and engaging.
