Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Great River Shakespeare Festival will increase participation in the arts by providing 12 free outdoor concerts during its summer season. The result is an increase in arts opportunities in the region for people who can't afford the cost of a ticket. Great River Shakespeare Festival will use surveys and data collection to monitor quality of programming and the number of people participating in the arts events.

Measurable Outcome(s)

One outcome was to provide 12 free concerts to increase access to the arts for Minnesotans. This was accomplished. The second outcome was to survey attendee’s responses. This was done online rather than on paper. Results are included in this report.
