Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Raise the quality, types and number of arts opportunities in our region. Using an activity list, participants will have a chance to rate 10 or more folk art activities to qualify for lovely prizes. Then we will interpret results to help improve the quality, add variety, or increase the number of art activities in 2018.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We planned a written survey but added a verbal component as people wanted to explain their responses.
