Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans that 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.We will create short surveys to be included in the programs handed out at the gate. They will be collected on the site and at the gate as they exit. Only those who hand in the survey get a ticket and are then eligible to win a reproduction tin sign or item from the Waseca County Historical Society gift shop. We also are present at the event to observe and take comments from visitors.
