Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program twenty artists will have gained visibility in their market and made a professional sale of one or more of their products. Red Lake and its surrounding neighbors will gain a rich culture of the Red Lake Nation and its artists. Registrations, visitor attendance, and survey tools will measure participation by age, gender, and race. Surveys will also indicate the level of satisfaction from attendees and participants. Festival hosts will collect anecdotal responses from attendees and artists, as well. Post-event feedback through surveys and focus groups will measure sales and value. Artists will provide feedback about their profit and overall experience.
