To continue to educate our audiences in the vast differences of arts programming as well as understanding the value of the Arts, Arts education, history and what the future holds in live entertainment. To bring new/ different art forms to our region. To educate our audiences that, for example, jazz is too large of a category to like or not. That within areas of the arts many different forms exist and by being exposed and educated broad statements can be narrowed and refined discussions can occur. To provide a welcoming, safe environment in which to participate in the arts. To survey patrons a minimum of twice a season. We have found our patrons are feeling over surveyed as the last survey included in programs had a dismal return. We put 200 surveys in playbill handed out to 400 patrons, 2 were returned even with our plea from the stage at the beginning of the evening. That same night over 300 red or white chips were awarded by patrons leaving the facility. We will continue to put white and red poker chips by the exits so patrons can “vote”; white if they liked the event and red if they did not. For outreach we will be asking participants to give us a word or two to describe the experience and put them into a word bubble. Ticket sales will continue to be a criteria for the board of directors as well as the bottom line.
Our target audience for performance as stated is the 40 – 60 year old patron. We nailed this with the granted shows. The vast majority of patrons falling into this category. By going to the schools our secondary audience of future patrons have lifelong arts experiences with national and international artists. The vast number of students reported in this final report are from the outreach programming.
