ACHF Arts Access
Broaden arts programming and participation opportunities for young performers and audiences by making more events available and affordable. Increased numbers of participants in workshops (25% increase is the goal); significant increase in numbers of audience members under 18; expanded programming for under 18 audiences. 2: Expand educational opportunities with more post-performance workshop, demonstration, talk-back and lecture events facilitated by both visiting professional and local artists. Quantitatively: by continuing to increase the number of opportunities beyond current levels, and the number of participants in them. Qualitatively: participant surveys.
For under eighteen age group: 632 had access as audience for four events; 64 participated in workshops; 23 were cast members in children's theatre production. Quantitative measurement. Workshop goal not met (lack of facilitator's time). Three more events than previous year. First offering of play with a children's cast in several years. Enthusiastic response to this type of programming. 2: Eleven separate talk-back, demonstration, lecture events attended by 787 participants. They were able to ask questions, gain insight, acquire skills. Mostly quantitative (head count). Anecdotal comments about the value of the experience (100% positive). Participation was voluntary, making numbers who participated significant. We seek less intrusive ways to collect information than a survey tool.
