Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases. The quality and types of arts education and learning opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. We have a hand out survey for productions. This is managed by the Programming Committee. We base that on the PLRAC provided example. We have done 'live' show of hands surveys in smaller shows, such as the Valentine's show from two years ago, but now more often rely on a paper survey.
