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 secretary and librarian will be typing up a survey for this year and they will distribute, evaluate and summarize the results.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Yes, we achieved our planned outcomes. We used a survey and compiled the results. We had more returns this season and the board will continue to change our music for our younger people and still do popular pieces.
