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. We do plan to make some changes to the survey in 2017 that will help our staff understand the needs of the audience members and the most efficient means of communication for the types of performances and programs offered.
