Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases. The quality, types and number of arts opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. New relationships with members of groups that have traditionally been underserved by the arts or by the applicant organization are built. Attached is last year's survey which was modified in 2017. We plan to use a similar survey in 2018. Anne Makepeace will make any survey modifications and compile the survey results.
