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 distribute surveys at all of our concerts to gain audience support and insight. We also offer a QR code for audience members to scan and fill out their survey online. We discovered that by having an online Google Form for the survey was that it was easier to tabulate and understand the survey results. At the end of the season, we will also survey our student participants to gain their feedback. The scholarship students will also be asked to thank you note about their experience.
