Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

More Minnesotans, especially those in the Southwest Minnesota Region, will be able to participate in the arts.We shall use one of our partner organizations The Hutchinson Center for the Arts to conduct in person surveys to our attendees during the intermission of each performance.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The most important outcome was the local community accepting the little church as a true arts venue. The summer programs were encouraged by our guests to be continued.
