Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1. Our project will provide access to participation in the arts to more southeast Minnesota residents through outdoors and free performances. 2. Our project addresses perceived barriers to participation in the arts by some groups of area residents. Goal 1: We will count audience and offer onsite surveys to them for feedback about their previous arts attendance. Goal 2: Performers will have a separate survey about previous arts involvement. We'll collect stories of those new to the arts.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Increase access. Many locals registered who are known to not attend arts events, but came because the stories concerned their ancestors and town. Visitors attended an “outdoor event” but wrote praise at the artistic skill involved.
