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 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 plan to do a sample survey of our attendees to determine where they are traveling from to attend Arli-Dazzle.
