Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases. The quality, types and number of arts opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. Real or perceived barriers to arts participation and arts access are identified and addressed. New relationships with members of groups that have traditionally been underserved by the arts or by the applicant organization are built. The number of Minnesotans who are engaged in arts education and learning opportunities increases. The quality and types of arts education and learning opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. Real or perceived barriers to arts learning are identified and addressed. The number of Minnesotans who participate in arts festivals and folk and traditional activities increases. The variety and number of festivals and traditional arts activities in our region/state increases. Mrs. Carpenter and Ms. Roche will devise a survey that is student-friendly for the band members to complete in the spring of 2017. Additionally, we will ask the students for verbal feedback throughout the project. Mrs. Carpenter will tabulate and include the results in the final report. The students/parents/administration/School Board will also be presented with a summary of the project/survey. We did not have an Arts and Cultural Heritage survey last year, as we received an Arts/Education grant that did not require it.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Yes, we achieved our planned outcomes. We created a survey and visited with the students after our on-site clinics. Their verbal comments were sincere and helpful! The students utilized many of the suggestions they received at MacPhail.
