Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Supporting artists and arts organizations in creating, producing and presenting high-quality arts activities. A passport survey is filled out by participants to gather information about the quality and experience of the event. An artist survey is filled out after the event by the artists reporting on economic benefits and number or participants. We will also keep track of the number of participants in this year's Meander. From all of these measurements, we can determine if the Meander was received as a high-quality arts activity.
