Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

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 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. The primary method used will be on-site video interviews conducted under the supervision of Carol Herden, who will also tabulate the results.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Yes, we achieved our planned outcomes. The survey was created and video interviews were conducted, results were tabulated and discussed with members of the Amboy community club.
