Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Provide access to participation in the arts for more Minnesotans: We hope to reach out to new audiences within the City of Red Wing and the surrounding areas who do not traditionally attend arts events. 1) Data collection: ticketing to gauge audience participation within and outside the geographic area. 2) Survey onsite: an onsite survey in the lobby of the Sheldon Theatre. 3) Observed behavior change: audience questions and responses at Q and A.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The access to participation went well outside of Red Wing and Goodhue County and far exceeded our expectations. This grant raised the visibility of the arts events of the three partners and will enhance access to our other arts opportunities.
