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 quality and types of arts education and learning opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. Real or perceived barriers to arts learning are identified and addressed. The number of Minnesotans who participate in arts festivals and folk and traditional activities increases. The variety and number of festivals and traditional arts activities in our region/state increases. We will conduct a survey with targeted questions to find out if we are reaching our target populations and achieving our goals. iPads will be available for guests to use if they take the survey at the information table. We will also have a QR code and short url for guests to complete survey on their own electronic device. We hope this will encourage more people to take the survey, if they have access to it on their own device and can do it when they want.
