Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans that are able to participate in the arts increases. Real or perceived barriers to arts participation and arts access are identified and addressed.We will create three exit surveys to measure the outcomes of our goals. One survey is for our audience to complete, the second is for the choir members, and the third is for the paid orchestral members and artists. We also have an evaluation plan that addresses our goal statements.
