Legacy Arts and Cultural Heritage
ACHF Arts Education
One of the priorities of this collaborative project is to present high quality arts, entertainment and experiences to visitors, showcasing Viking and Scandinavian cultural traditions, heritage and way of life. Another goal is to feed that lifelong learner in all of us and create curiosity for other cultures.We will pass out short written evaluations with a goal of getting 15% response. Every year we strive to create a better experience for the community and increase their arts and culture exposure. The relatively recent partnership with the Midwest Viking Fest filled the gaps in programming and interest that the Scandinavian Festival had been missing. By measuring these results through surveys and direct contact, we can be actively involved with the trends and needs of the community.
One of our target populations was young families and based on survey results, 75% of those we surveyed rated the festivals a ''5'' when we asked them to rate how ''family-friendly'' the festivals were on a scale of 1-5 (5 being the highest rating). The festival gives truly does give Minnesotans access to high quality arts experiences as 39% of those we surveyed were from Minnesota. We also concluded that the festivals continue to bring in new people, since 63% of those we surveyed said that it was their first time at either festival.
