Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Audiences and participants gain knowledge about issues of diversity and inclusion through accessible quality arts initiatives. These events explore the contributions and showcase the arts traditions of Minnesotans of various backgrounds and also provide a platform for diverse performers.Surveys will identify the number of people who attend the various events and the number of new and returning participants. People will be able to respond to questions regarding what they learned about diversity and inclusion by attending the events. A focus group will review all CD and I activities.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Goals were met by the depth and range of offerings that were accessible at little or no cost to the public. Those goals were to provide a dynamic mix of offerings to engage individuals on different levels to develop a deeper awareness of the arts' ability to inform and educate as well as entertain.
