Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

CulturFest will provide access to quality arts performances, artist demonstrations and discussion from the artists related to their craft to more Minnesotans who would otherwise not have the resources or opportunity to have these experiences. CulturFest has hired an evaluator to interview artists, demonstrators, attendees and volunteers to learn about their experience through a combination of oral interviews and onsite surveys.

Measurable Outcome(s)

By providing a dynamic, multi-faceted event we were able to draw an audience with differing interests to the festival, many of whom would not otherwise have an opportunity to experience arts based event.
