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. A survey will be developed by the committee and will be sent to everyone that has indicated a willingness to purchase a paver block, as well as members of the community at various fundraising events. The survey will deal not only with this project but also other theater type projects that we have either provided in the past or may consider in the future. We will also include in the survey what types of outreach we have used and if it was impactful.
