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 conduct a production survey and share the results with the Marketing Committee and the Board. Committees will utilize the data in selecting future productions and events, as well as in booking other events at the theater. We will watch for trends as to who the primary audience was for a specific type of event and whether we need to shift focus.
