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. 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 band will use an audience survey, as in the past couple of years. In the 2016 survey, we got some good ideas of what music our audience wants to hear more of, and we will use open-ended interviews again in this way. We will, as always, count audience members each concert and will survey the student musicians in a separate survey, about their educational experiences in the summer band. We used Survey Monkey in 2017 and will do that again, also. In addition, we will provide sample concert programs, photos and films, to document our audience and music. Martha Lindberg, the Grants Officer, has been assigned to create and coordinate the survey. She will get help in distributing and tabulating results from Nancy Kremer.
