Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

More Minnesotans, especially those in the Southwest Minnesota Region, will be able to participate in the arts.We send out an email after the festival to the exhibitors to secure comments and, if they will share, sales. Sales are then categorized by technique and style. This gives us some guide as to the success of the educational component in broadening understanding of techniques. This year we will use live interviewers to cover a brief survey, which will cover demographic, geographic information and some use and knowledge information.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Increased sales by potters and enthusiastic crowd.
