Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The quality, types and number of arts opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. Real or perceived barriers to arts participation and arts access are identified and addressed. New relationships with members of groups that have traditionally been underserved by the arts or by the applicant organization are built. The number of Minnesotans who are engaged in arts education and learning opportunities increases. The quality and types of arts education and learning opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. Success will be measured by responses to the surveys for events and classes, attached. We will know we've been successful if every survey opportunity yields at least one response indicating that the experience was thought-provoking, uplifting, and/or inspiring in an artistic, intellectual, or otherwise personally meaningful way.
