Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Provide access to participation in the arts for more Minnesotans. Build new relationships with groups traditionally underserved by the arts. We also hope during this 50th Anniversary Season to celebrate our rich heritage with the greater community. We plan to conduct surveys and focus groups in order to measure our outcomes and also to gather information to build for the future. We will also use data collection to analyze our audience and people served.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Provided access for participating in the arts in Minnesota. Built new relationships with groups traditionally under-served by the arts. Celebrated our rich heritage in the community with a successful 50th Anniversary Season!
