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. We will create, distribute and tabulate the results of a patron survey. Questions will include: evaluating their experience as audience members, evaluating the quality of the event, and asking if the individual is more inclined to experience more performances like these in the future, either as a participant or a patron.
