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. Attendance figures will be collected at the time of the events. Survey results will be collected on-site using pen and paper surveys handed out at the end of the events. Conference volunteers will enter data, and the conference coordinator will tabulate results and provide the necessary reports.
