Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases. Real or perceived barriers to arts participation and arts access are identified and addressed. The number of Minnesotans who are engaged in arts education and learning opportunities increases. The number of Minnesotans who participate in arts festivals and folk and traditional activities increases. We will survey our audience at the Expo again this year. We will focus on determining whether the goals and outcome statements are met, and giving us a baseline for responses for future surveys. We also work with our members all season to ensure that the instruction and experiences that they are getting from the Govenaires are meeting both our own expectations and theirs.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Yes, we achieved our planned outcomes. We created and distributed a survey. The responses were positive. We are pursuing ideas for increasing our survey participation rate, so we can have meaningful results for grants and analysis.
